Paris-based Lithuanian filmmaker Alante Kavaite returns to her home turf of Lithuania for this heartfelt snapshot of summer love and self-discovery between two young girls.
After first meeting at a local aerobatics show, Auste (Dirziute), sells a raffle ticket to Sangaile (Steponaityte), a tall, slender 17-year-old who is spending the summer at her family’s lake house. The attraction movies quickly from mild crush to all-consuming infatuation, with the free-spirited Auste leading in the blossoming relationship.
This film has been a critically acclaimed winner on the film festival circuit and is a great coming-of-age tale between the two girls as they fall in love. Certainly well worth watching.
