Set in Lithuania in 1948 after the conclusion of World War 2, the film follows a 19-year-old who is a member of the Partisan movement resisting Soviet occupation. Discovering violence and treachery at a young age, the lines blur between the passion of his youth and the cause for which he is fighting.
The cast includes Arvydas Dapsys, Marius Povilas, Elijas Martinenko, Alina Zaliukaite-Ramanauskiene, Valdas Virgailis and Vita Siauciunaite.Describing the relevance of the film in today’s world, Bartas said in his director’s notes: “You can find the same war in Ukraine — and it is happening today. It’s a world of real wars, not Cold Wars or hybrid wars. Almost all countries invest in arms and maintenance of troops. One could say that these issues were irrelevant if the whole world was disarmed and living in peace.
“On a historical level, 1939-1945 is quite recent. And not only one but two World Wars — with a short break between — took place in the first half of last century. No one is sure that [World War 3] won’t break out, or that there won’t be more local wars in the near future. That’s why I’d say this is directly related both to the present times and history of humanity,” said Bartas.
