My Favorite War er en personlig dokumentarfilm som forteller historien om regissørens oppvekst i Latvia under Sovjetunionen i årene 1970-1990. Regimet i Sovjetunionen brukte andre verdenskrig som et betydelig ideologisk våpen for å skremme og undertrykke befolkningen under den kalde krigen. Når Ilze finner et bein fra en tysk soldat i sandkassa begynner hun å finne andre historier begravd under propagandaen. 

My Favorite War er animert dokumentar om valg av identitet og lojalitet. Både hovedpersonen og hennes land må ta valg under et autoritært regime der det ikke finnes valgmuligheter.
