The film is also part of the series "Travellers in Time" and features an architecturally and historically important place in Latvia - a military port on its Western coast. It has been the Soviet navy base since the end of World War II, occupying one-fifth of the city - Liepåja. The army left the area devastated, leaving behind a ravaged environment and people, contradicting the glamour of the past. The question why this barbarism was committed remains unanswered.
