So, I want to ask the viewer in the film: "why is it so hard to love each other?". This film is an essay about two Lithuanian generations that didn’t find a way to love each other. It is a story about kids who didn’t have a childhood because their dreams were lost in post-soviet urban yards.
In 2019, Saulius premiered with his debut short film GOLDEN MINUTES.
