About this Event

TAKE IT OR LEAVE IT/Võta või jäta

Sunday, November 10, 7:20 pm

102 min. In Estonian with English subtitles.

One sleepy Saturday morning, 30-year-old construction worker Erik gets some earth-shattering news: His ex-girlfriend Moonika, whom he hasn’t seen in six months, is about to go into labor with his child. Having decided that she isn’t ready for motherhood, Moonika is planning to put the little girl up for adoption — unless Erik steps up to the plate. In director Liina Triškina-Vanhatalo’s compassionate and thought-provoking portrait of a young man at a crossroads in modern Estonia, this is just the first of many difficult decisions Erik will need to make as he learns to become a hero of everyday life, one ready to fight tooth and nail in order to be a father. (Estonia, 2018)
