From the Golden Globe and Oscar-nominated producer Allfilm (The Fencer, Tangerines), Take It or Leave It is a poignant, socially-engaged drama offering a modern take on fatherhood and responsibility.
One sleepy Saturday morning, 30-year-old construction worker Erik gets some earth-shattering news: his ex-girlfriend Moonika who he hasn’t even seen for the past six months is about to go into labour. However, she is not ready for motherhood and if Erik doesn’t want the child either, the little girl will be put up for adoption. Take it or leave it! First full-length drama by experienced documentary filmmaker and editor Liina Trishkina-Vanhatalo, Take It or Leave It is Estonia's national submission for the 2019 Academy Awards.
