For five years, Enn Padrik has postponed the investigation into the
apparently religiously inspired suicides of his daughter and her
friends at a commune near Viljandi, but now he can postpone it no
longer. He must travel all over Estonia and even as far as France
interviewing anyone who might remember anything relevant.
Some of these people seem to have been waiting for him, others
refuse to talk. And little by little, a bigger and quite unexpected
picture starts to emerge. From the late 1970s through 2011, The
Reconstruction spans the lives of two generations, going from the
late 1970s through 2011, narrating the changes in the wider world
and Estonian society in particular, the transition from a world of
right and wrong to a world where most things are neither, but the
yearning for absolute truths still won't go away.
