MODRIS (2014)

Director Juris Kursietis.

Modris is neither better nor worse than his peers. His mother is raising him alone and the relationship is bad. Misfortunes start to roll down the hill like a snowball when Modris sells his mother's electric heater in a pawnshop to get the winnings from the slot machine. The long-standing conflict with the mother explodes and she hands her son over to the police for re-education. The court gives a two-year suspended sentence and thus begins the young man's adventures with the Latvian judicial system. Soon Modris realizes that he wants to find his unknown father.
