Synopsis: Blueberry Spirits is a poetic documentary about a Roma family that spends its summers in the Latvian forests, picking berries to make a living. While harvesting the fruits of the forest, they reflect on their identity as a group by sharing ghost stories.

Surrounded by existential questions on how to balance the future and the past, traditions and modern life, the movie points out their struggle for identity as a journey between night and day, and vice versa.
