Synopsis

Swetlana Geier is considered the greatest translator of Russian literature into German. She has just concluded her life’s work for Zurich’s Ammann publishing house: completing new translations of Dostoyevsky’s five great novels, known as “the five elephants.” This award-winning film interweaves the story of Geier’s life with her literary work and traces the secret of this inexhaustible, hard-working woman. In German with English subtitles.
