Interpretation in the form of essay.
Latvians think through mud and view the world through a “muddy” filter. Where does the mud come from, and why does it invariably remain: in this country and in our souls? Mud doesn’t just appear from tears falling upon dry earth. Mud also comes form spillover, done out of joy. And the mud itself creates happiness and inspiration for new mud.
Inta is a brusque, crusty woman who lives alone on the edge of a picturesque marsh. One day her solitude is intruded upon by the arrival of a documentary filmmaker. In his eyes Inta is an outstanding would-be film protagonist but the wild woman would rather put a curse on the importunate intruder than let herself be filmed. But the filmmaker's persistance finally succeeds in melting the ice of Inta's heart... just in order to break it soon afterwards.
