    Comedy drama

    Twenty-something Indre (Indré Patkauskaité), a recent psychology postgraduate, has just joined a leading clinic when she’s tasked with escorting Paulius (Paulius Markevicius), a patient who has bipolar disorder, to another facility. Tagging along for the ride are Juste (Gelminé Glemžaité), a quiet young woman under observation following a recent suicide attempt, and the clinic’s lead nurse. Along their journey, they break through each other’s barriers, delve into the sources of their various traumas, and discover the lasting imprints left on their fragile souls.

    There is a quiet melancholy that pervades the film, particularly in its thoughtfully shaded character work.
