Vilnius, four hot summer days. Goda is learning anew to have a relationship while dealing with past trauma. Justė always had a safe life, planned for her by others, as she finally realizes she wants to decide for herself. After twenty years of marriage Vytas leaves his family, unable to admit his true reasons. The voice of Anatolijus joins all of these stories and experiences into one breathless state, which every character is trying to escape on their way to finding freedom in a constantly changing society that keeps on developing new standards.

“PEOPLE WE KNOW ARE CONFUSED is a story about people trying to deal with their desires and their fear of change, and about the inner torture they experience amid the constantly changing norms and rules of the world they live in” says director Tomas Smulkis about his debut feature.
