208 pages feature 99 photographs of police officers, folk girls, protesters and collective rituals, which together form a critical, ironic and sentimental picture of Latvian society. The photos were taken from 2008 to 2015, when Latvia recovered from the previous economic crisis and the ideological goal of that time – the introduction of the euro – promised to solve all its problems. Today there's another crisis and another solution, but has society changed?
