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 a person’s real vital force arises after death. Lembri Uudu died at such a time that he became a hero who still gives villagers the power to live and keeps the kolkhoz united.

Russia’s biggest summer resort, Sotchi, was chosen as the venue of the Winter Olympic Games of 2014. President Putin promised snow for the Games, no traffic jams and big investments in building the Olympic facilities.
How did it effect the neighbouring small villages? If they survived the development, could they continue the life they ware used to?
