“Ruch and Norie” is a Latvian-produced documentary of a human interest story about two contrasting people striking up a surprising, emotional and spiritual relationship. Japanese student Norie travels to Latvia to study the Suiti community, where she meets Ruch, one of the oldest Suiti women. That changes Norie’s life forever and the close bond between them doesn't break even after her return to Japan. Norie thinks she has found her deceased grandma in Ruch. Meanwhile, Ruch worries about Norie and trembles at the news of every earthquake in Japan. The documentary "Ruch and Norie" shows us all that there are no borders to a genuine human relationship filled with laughter, caring and love.
