Spanish premiere

Visual rhymes, resonant rhymes and a very precise editing in a film that is secretly politic, visual and fascinating sound wise. A road in Latvia, pedestrians, children, and several stations that go around, dance, and walk close to a still very recent past. The entire world fits onto a single bicycle road.
Special Mention, Vilnius International Documentary Film festival, Lituania; Best Short Documentary, Doclisboa International Film Festival.
