Set during the period of Stalinist tyranny, Moonika Siimets’ drama, set in Estonia, tells of a six-year-old girl, Leelo, whose mother, a school principal, has been expelled to a prison camp. Confused and troubled by her mother’s absence, Leelo focuses on the last thing she said to her - to be a good girl - in the hope it will bring her back. It explores the power of childhood in a time of turmoil.
