Synopsis: Intimate portrait of the enchanting Svetlana Geier - the hunched, wizened translator of Dostoevsky's novels, still bubbling well into her twilight years with insight into language, literature and life.
“This quiet, erudite and very moving documentary about one woman’s passion for literature gracefully unfolds to encompass a great sweep of history.”~New Zealand International Film Festival

5 stars (Exceptional) An intense, complex, & intimate portrait of a brave, kind and intelligent Ukrainian expatriate. Extremely informative on language, translation, & history. Her return to Kiev after 65 years with her granddaughter is intensely moving. Very fine.~Sandy
