A man falls off a roof. Another one drowns. Another catches fire. Wherever you look, men are dropping like flies. “May God rest their souls,” sigh the widows as they cross themselves somberly. This is the life and the death of the men in Virago—a village where for centuries no man has lived long enough to see his fortieth birthday. Until today.
Inspired by true events and set in rural Estonia where the harsh realities of present day weave with the mystical, this film tells the story of virāgōs—women who possess both heroic and hostile qualities.
