VOYAGE BEYOND THREE SEAS. Focus on Estonia

Karin and Riho have grown apart from each other after fifteen years of marriage. Riho is tormented by the fact that he has not succeeded in climbing the ladder of success and remains a casual labourer in a pig farm. Karin works in the same place as a veterinarian and she is tired of hearing her husband's unfounded promises and of soothing his feelings of inferiority. As parents, they are too engrossed in the maze of their own relationship to notice what is happening in the lives of their sons - until the younger son pulls off a trick that makes his whole family reassess their actions.
