    • Synopsis
    • The Second World War is over. However, the partisans in Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia, soon forgotten by the world, were still fighting a hopeless battle for their freedom.
      They attacked the Soviet occupying forces from out of the forests. That is why people called them the “Forest Brothers”.
      Very few of those forest fighters who survived the long years in prison camps afterwards are themselves able to tell their story today.
      This film follows four of them. It relates the course of their lives, a story which we in the West have misunderstood, misconstrued, distrusted, and even ignored.
      In Latvian with subtitles (English, Estonian or Lithuanian). Also available dubbed in German.
