The film is a documentary epic and a portrait of a human being in history and in our present. Lida is an old Babushka – and the last Old-Swedish speaking person in a former Swedish settlement in Eastern Ukraine. She lives in a nursing home and has fallen in love with a Russian man. Her sister and son, whom she hasn't seen in 50 years, live in Russia. When Lida passes away, a language will disappear along with her recollections from World War II. By blending time and places, the film paints a poetic narrative of a family love that only exists in memories.

Eborn made her first long documentary with Pine Ridge (2013), which world-premiered at the Venice Film Festival. She has directed the short films The Brazilian (2007) and Baba (2010), selected for Göteborg Film Festival and Nordic Panorama.
