This film is based on the life story of the distinguished Latvian cameraman John Dored and his wife, the painter Elisabeth Dored. This is a film about profession and destiny, profession and love, and life and death.
“I’ve always felt limited by scripts and staging, I always yearned for freedom. I became a film reporter to shoot footage of those things for which our Father in Heaven writes the screenplay,” Dored wrote in his memoirs.
