This documentary about the Germans from Russia examines what causes a region, a place, to imprint itself upon the people who are born and live there. What is the connection between landscape and memory; what is forgotten, what is remembered? How may a territory endure in the minds of the descendants of those inhabitants after years, even after generations, have passed?
