After 30 years of exile in Paris, Jana travels back to Vilnius. She wants to see again the lake that Paulius, her first love, called "Walden". Between new emotions and the black market, the Lithuanian youth before the fall of Communism dreams of freedom and leaving for the West. WALDEN is the third feature film by Bojena Horackova, a Czech filmmaker exiled in Paris for over 30 years. (Lili Hinstin, Locarno Film Festival)
