Many Latvians come to the UK every year in search of a better life. In the depth of the economic crisis in Latvia, the choices were limited. The inadequate income, sometimes as little as £3 a day, is not enough to live comfortably, let alone support a family. Director Juris Kudeiko creates a timely and intimate portrait of a young Latvian man who immigrates to the UK and depicts an adventurous and hopeless, yet sometimes even funny world of ‘mo money mo problems’.
