Warmed up by the spring sun, Gustavs & Marta explore geographical units that estonians own, but we – latvians dont. Islands in the Baltic sea. The relaxed aura of Haapsalu is swiped away by adrenline caused by swinging in the rope that is tied to a top of a lighthouse on Hiumaa island. But after a short course in traditional crafts of Saaremaa island, travelers reach the place in which many estonians want to grow old – Kihnu island in the south of Estonia.
Marta & Gustavs wade an onion garden near Lake Peipsi, survive a series of 6 explosions and breathing strange gasses in Tartu science center just to get an audience with the Setomaa King.
Gustavs and Marta travel a little bit north from Latvia to find few reasons why anyone should outline the contours of Estonia in their vacation plans. A flood, a submarine, a kiss from a bison, a cow-girl and a little bit of blood mark this first journey.
Gustavs and Marta, two young Latvians, go to where the waves are coming ashore to look for intangible values – the aftertaste of a well smoked herring, the smell of birch sauna whisk in the hair and the inner quiet instilled by the sea. These are the hidden treasures that the people living on the Baltic Sea coast can share with the rest of the world. Gustavs and Marta will find out how to do it without ruining them.
“Ziemeļu puse” team gets invited to peak into copper tanks, yeast tubes and sunbath together with 50K danes. All in the name of the beer.

Gustavs and Marta go under ground to find out how long time is 100 000 years, how old is scandinavian bedrock and how these two things coexist with swedish plan to deposit their nuclear waste deep underground, stored in huge copper canisters.
Gustavs & Marta travel to Ulvon island in Northern Sweden to meet clown Ruben Madsen and explore the ordinary truth behind the dramatic smelly myth of fermented Baltic herring or surströmming.
