  • Paradise behind the fence
  • At the end of the 19th century, 65 families left Estonia in search of a better life. 37 of them reached a beautiful place by the Black Sea where they established an Estonian village. When Sochi was selected to hold the Olympic Games in 2007, active development began. The blossoming trees were cast under asphalt, animals killed as they were not welcome in the Olympic village. New roads and houses were erected, but after being used for only weeks they now stand empty. The film consisting of portraits tells about how drastically the world of Estonians living in Sochi changed.
