Ashes in the Snow
In a dramatic historical story that tells of an unfinished art history for a girl in 1941. In that historical period, a 16-year-old ambitious artist and her family were deported to Siberia amid Stalin's brutal dismantling of the Baltic Sea region, which could greatly affect the artist's career. In the end, there seems to be something very different, as its hope will go out into the light and break the rules of history and its laws.
