Submitted By: Rivo Laasi

Festival Rating 5.0

The film tells the story of people who make at least one trip on an Estonian river every summer. This time it is documented on a video. Hikers are of very different ages and two 10 year-old children are also participating the journey.

The trip lasts for three days.

A movie is a video diary in which the order of events has not been changed.

The film is meant for those hikers who have never ridden a canoe and who have never seen the river views or are unfamiliar with the specifics of the river riding.

However, it is also intended for river hikers who have not sailed on the Võhandu River and who might need a small overview of what to expect.

A person who never gets into the river can just travel with us sitting in an armchair and get a quick overview of an exciting few-days canoeing trip and the related fun, dangers and scenic views of nature.
