Stolen Meeting

Valentina gets out of prison, goes back to Estonia and starts looking for her son Jüri whom she has given up for adoption years ago. She firmly believes that together with her son life would completely change. Valentina has grown up in an orphanage and knows nothing about her parents. She blames the fact for the twists and turns of her life and wants better for her son whom she loves from the bottom of her heart. When Valentina finally finds her son in Tartu where he lives in a civilized well-off Estonian family, she will face an unexpected issue.
