Synopsis by Bhob Stewart
This Macedonian-Polish co-production is set in 1950 Albania. The love affair of Albanian Elena (Agnieszka Wagner) and Macedonian Konstantin (Nikola Ristanovski) is interrupted by events during Albania's communist period. When Konstantin attempts to see her by illegally crossing a lake, corrupt Albanians label him a spy, sentencing him to prison and hard labor. Eventually, when he's released, Elena and Konstantin marry, and he returns to his old land-surveying job. However, when he requests a visit to his hometown, new conflicts arise. Shown at 1997 film festivals (Montreal, Toronto, Thessaloniki).
