Ashes in the Snow

Ashes in the Snow is the harrowing true story following a 16-year-old girl who is deported to Siberia during the Soviet occupation.

Siberia, 1941, Stalin’s henchmen violently invade and ruthlessly deport Baltic families from their homes. Sixteen year old Lina, along with her mother and younger brother, are exiled to a soviet labour camp whilst Lina’s father gets put in a prison camp. Lina fights for her life, fearless, vowing that if she survives she will honour her family, and the thousands like her, by documenting the experience in her art. She risks everything, hoping that her messages in art will make their way to her father’s prison camp to let him know his family is still alive.

A beautifully executed yet heart-breaking, captivating and eye opening drama that unveils a forgotten part of history in a way that makes you experience the despair and shocking conditions of war.
