    • Synopsis
    • An Irish poet and a Lithuanian stage director retrace the steps of the 19th century Lithuanian Book Smugglers, who resisted Russification and saved their language from extinction.
      Travelling through the forests and along the rivers, each looks into the mirror of the other country’s history and explores the links between language and identity.
