A woman who grew up in a small town in Alaska goes to the public library to try and find out who her parents were. She was brought to town as a baby in a cardboard box with "Kotzebue" on it, which is the name of the town and also the name of the family that founded the town. She eventually befriends the librarian, an East German immigrant who lost her husband while escaping from behind the Iron Curtain. They help each other try to find closure to the events in their past.
Amazing movie from 1991. No better movie has ever been made in Drama genre... and now Salmonberries is available to watch online for free. I was so emotionally destroyed that I saw the entire movie three times on the internet almost in one go. The soundtrack of these movie is simple, decieving, full of mischief in its own right. Superb direction by Percy Adlon - great drama scenes. For sure, no one will remain indifferent. It is definitely great. I uploaded this movie to this website.
