Going to Beyond is based on the song “Üle Toonela tumeda vee” (“Over the Dark Waters to One”), about going to the land of the dead in the Finno-Ugric mythology, sung by singers who were recent refugees in Toronto and conducted by Maestro Roman Toi in 1954. The film is a creative treatment of the emotional story of leaving everything that is known and tells the singers’ story of despair and renewal.
