Synopsis

1938. While Lithuania celebrates its Independence Day, war looms on the horizon. A young geographer pitches to the Prime Minister the idea of creating a backup state overseas, where the country’s inhabitants could move in case of danger. An odd yet heartfelt friendship arises between the two men.

Our take

Karolis Kaupinis’s boldly assured debut is a wonderfully unusual historical drama about our need for hope in order to escape a desperate situation. With a beautiful period recreation and a tone that wavers between dry comedy and earnest melancholy, an eccentric story comes to stand for so much more.
