Production Status: completed


An ambitious young research psychologist, Indrė, who has reluctantly agreed to transport two patients from one psychiatric unit to another in exchange for research privileges at her clinic, finds herself the leader of a rag-tag band on a long journey to the seaside. Paulius is an outgoing young man with bipolar disorder whose manic outbursts stand in great contrast to the introverted bearing of Justė whose wounds are hidden from sight, but both are fighting the inner battles that define them. As they all navigate the survival process together, what was to be a carefree summer ride with friends and laughs turns into a bittersweet story of healing - one full of hope, surprises and infinite possibilities, just like summer itself.
