Survive the summer

"The long-awaited debut film of Marija Kavtaradze lived up to expectations - it is one of those seemingly easily but confidently made films, which has a lot of authenticity, love for people and cinema itself, and the desire to make life easier for those who need it." (M. Valiūnaitė)

Ambitious budding psychologist Indrė agrees to take two patients to the seaside clinic: Paulias, who is going through a manic phase of bipolar disorder, and Justė, who is withdrawn. As the trio wrestle with their inner demons on the road, they slowly discover a bond with each other. Apparently, an easy summer trip turns into the first step towards recovery. It's a warm and moving story that - like summer - is full of light, surprises and hope that anything is possible.
