"Lyrical, life-affirming tales of hurt and healing in a hotbox" – Variety
★★★★★ – Eye for Film
Deep in Estonian woodland sits a wooden hut, nestled in lush greenery and wild flowers. Inside, women gather to sweat out their struggles in a deep and meaningful communion.
Anna Hints’ intimate documentary paints portraits of these women, shedding generational traumas around love, sex, abuse and freedom together – undressed and unburdening, enveloped in smoke.
An empowering yet gentle film, exploring a community’s ritual that is slowly healing generational wounds.
