Helen's Birthday

Helen is far from being over her divorce. On her birthday, her friends drag her to a club to cheer her up. But things go wrong. As she’s about to leave, a taxi driver named Peeter unexpectedly opens up a path to something new. Eventually though, Helen becomes an intruder in the house where she lived with her ex. A subtle drama about letting go when a relationship is over.
