Finding Elvis

Latvia, 2008

Director: Celma, Una
Production company: Latsfilma
Age recommendation: 10 years and up

Synopsis:
The film is about five children from a fifth grade class. There are three boys and two girls: Nils, Roberts, Tomass, Beate and Elza. During a Friday morning assembly they learn from their homeroom teacher that their classmate Elvis has been absent without explanation for a long time. Nils overhears two teachers saying that they are unable to reach Elvis or his mother - no one answers the phone and no one knows where they are. Nils senses that the grownups don't seem interested in finding out what has happened to Elvis. Nils, however, is very curious and gets some of his classmates to help investigate. The children all come from different social backgrounds, but have one thing in common; adults and parents have little time for them.
