The Wayfarers

It's a story about three Siberian Estonian women of different generations whose ancestors were deported from Estonia as criminals in the 19th century. Instead of prison, they ended up in paradise - a fertile land where people quickly rebuilt their lives. One hundred and seventy years later, the situation has reversed: some have already "got used to the life here", but for others, on the eve of the war, it is the last minute to travel to paradise, which on this occasion is Estonia.
