Till Estonia's re-independence in 1991, Pähkla village in Saaremaa had a kolkhoz which provided jobs for all the villagers. Lembri Uudu also worked in a kolkhoz as a tractor driver. After the collapse of the Soviet Union, the kolkhoz was disbanded, most of Pähkla's villagers lost their jobs and Uudu died. But sometimes it happens that person’s real vital force arises after his death. Lembri Uudu died at such a right time that he became a hero who still gives villagers the power to live and keeps the kolkhoz united.

"I have always believed in love and life. And I have always believed that death is not the end of life. I really do admire people who are able to live after their death. I am fascinated with Lembri Uudu who, even after his death, gives people strength to live. Lembri Uudu is not just a man or a mere ghost, he’s a breath of life." - Eeva Mägi
