Photojournalist Mel Hurley returns home to San Francisco on the eve of his birthday, expecting his lover, Carmen, to meet him at the airport and tell him if she will be exclusively his. She's not there, she wants more time. Almost 20 years ago, he'd photographed civil war in Biafra, wanting to tell a story that would save people. He now equates that war with his personal struggle: can his photographs save this relationship? He goes to Carmen to talk to her; first he acts the fool, then they seem to connect. But, can he control his jealousy and not force things with her?

            A documentary of numerous stories of young people, living in Soviet Latvia. These are mainly stories of different youngsters, viewed differed by Soviet society and local pro-soviet government - punks, those who demolished the train after the legendary local rock band 'Perkons' concert, for that being regarded as public enemies, a mortuary worker and more. Different lives, different expectations, for some lack of freedom and pressure from the government and fear. One of the rare documentaries that can be so touching, because it's so true.
