In the focus of Vallo Toomla’s Teesklejad (Pretenders) there is a couple who struggles to save their relationship in their friends’ mansion when two strangers show up to ask for shelter from the storm…

Anu Aun’s Polaarpoiss (Poles) captures the beauty of the Estonian capital while examining the relationship of psychiatric disorder and normality through the stories of its young protagonists.
