A Latvian archivist investigates an apparent suicide in this deliberate monochrome mystery from filmmaker Fred Keleman. Matiss Zelcs (Egons Dombrovskis) is a quiet archivist living in the Latvian capitol of Riga. On his way home from work one dark evening, Matiss spies a woman standing silently on a nearby bridge. When Matiss hears what sounds like a splash followed by muffled screaming, he returns to the bridge to find no evidence of foul play. Though a cynical detective is reluctant to devote time to the case due to general apathy and a lack of evidence, a local bartender offers a helpful lead when he unexpectedly produces the woman's purse. Compelled by the photographs contained in the purse and driven by the discovery of numerous unfinished love letters in a nearby garbage bin, Matiss sets out to question Alexi Mesetzkis (Nikolai Korobov) -- the man who, despite being photographed with the missing woman, does not appear to be her husband. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
