Three years after the end of the WWII, Lithuania still struggles under the Russian occupation and the morale of the nation is totally ruined. Young Unté may have reached the proper age to start exploring the pleasures of human coexistence but he joins a partisan group and instead of love and hope he discovers a world full of violence and betrayal. A window into a dark chapter of history is a thorough study of human stubbornness and determination for higher good no matter the cost...
