In 1941, a teenage aspiring artist and her family are deported to Siberia amidst Stalin’s brutal dismantling of the Baltic region.
About The Film

In 1941, Lina is an artistic 16-year-old living comfortably with her family in Lithuania. When Soviet officers burst into their home, Lina, her mother, and her younger brother are forced separately onto a train car headed to one of Stalin's work camps in Siberia. Suffering through cruel conditions, Lina finds refuge in the connections she makes with other deportees and in the art she continues to create, despite her surroundings.

Based on the best-selling book by Ruta Sepetys, Between Shades of Gray, Lina's story is one of hardship and of human triumph. First time feature director Marius Markevicius commemorates a heartbreaking time in history with compassion, bringing authenticity and heart to the forefront. As the unwaveringly hopeful Lina, Bel Powley emits equal parts girlish optimism and womanly resolve.
