A Lithuanian provincial town is facing an economic crisis in 2008. Vytas, a father of two and a loving husband, gets fired from the factory. Immediately he starts looking for a new job, but slowly drifts into the limbo of unemployment where he faces his personal crisis.
Financial crisis – compared to other personal crises in life – is nothing. My intent was to make a film about a man who is looking for ways to overcome all the obstacles in his life, or in other words, learns how to act as a responsible grown-up man.
