Swetlana Geier is considered the greatest translator of Russian literature into German. Her lifework for Zurich's Ammann publishing house are new translations for Dostoyevsky's five great novels - known as the five elephants. Her work is characterized by a great and sensual feeling for language and an uncompromising respect for the writers she translates. Together with the film director, the eighty-five-year old woman is making her first trip back to the places of her childhood in the Ukraine. The film interweaves the story of Geier's life with her literary work and traces the secret of this inexhaustibly hard-working woman.

Awards: Yamagata International Documentary Festival 2011 - Citizen's Prize, Yerevan International Film Festival 2010, Silver Apricot - Special Prize
