Lida is a modern, poetic, cinematic experience. By blending time and places, a narrative painting is created about a family love that only exists in memories. These are told in a timeless way by the main character Lida, her son and sister, mixing them, so that the characters can communicate with each other regardless of the miles and hours separating them. The film is an impressionistic, dreamy piece about beautiful characters who span generations and have lived through war, a war that they aren't a part of or involved in, but are nonetheless irreversibly affected by. Lida is an old Babushka, and is the last Old-Swedish speaking person in a former Swedish settlement in Ukraine.
