During a trip to the US, Ieva’s father - a KGB employee about to defect, offered her a blunt choice: take a taxi to the Soviet Embassy and denounce him as a traitor, or stay with him and never see her mother or her homeland of Latvia again.
As a young Soviet student in 1978, Ieva could not have predicted that a holiday to visit her father, then working at the UN in New York, would irreversibly split her life in two. Entangled in a dark spy game, Ieva was forced to leave her former life behind, never to see her mother or her homeland of Latvia again.
Pulling back the curtain on the shady behind-the-scenes world of the Cold War, this evocative spy movie tells a daughter’s dramatic story of her double-agent father. In order to find herself and understand the game she was part of, Ieva sets out on a journey to the past, confronting family secrets, lies and betrayal.
