In 1927, Lillian Alling left New York, crossed into Canada at Niagara Falls, headed for Alaska, and continued her epic solo trek along the Bering Strait toward Russia. She was never heard from again.
Celebrated documentary filmmaker Andreas Horvath reimagines Lillian’s journey as a present-day odyssey, presenting an enigmatic road movie that was described by the Hollywood Reporter as ‘a portrait of female spirit and determination and a reflection on the loneliness at the heart of America today’.

Andreas Horvath, Austria, 2019, 130 min. Russian, English & Chukchi spoken, Dutch subtitles. With Patrycja Planik, Chris Shaw, Albert Lee, Dave Swallow.
