The debut feature film by director Raimundas Banionis, whose main characters, Linas (Saulius Balandis) and Rūta (Eleonora Koriznaitė), meet in a café in Kaunas. Soon casual acquaintance turns into a serious relationship, but Rūta has a secret. The story of first true love is accompanied by walks around Kaunas, youthful discussions in the company of friends and the first encounters with the challenges of life. The film reveals the mood and feelings of young people, the desire of the younger generation to fight for independence from moralizing parents, and a need to build their lives the way they want.
