Director and mastermind of the Golden Dove winning documentary Audrius Mickevičius is no longer alive among us. The infamous Lukiškės prison in the city centre of Vilnius is currently closed down (but hosts film productions, screenings, excursions). No one expected such coincidences. There is still a chance to rewind time back, hear motivation for forgiveness by Audrius and visit this monumental place, which does not exist anymore.
Philosopher Nerijus Milerius (co-writer of "Isaac", premiered in Tallinn a year ago) fulfilled a promise to finish meaningful, dynamic, surreal film about people and cats behind the bars. Cinema and surveillance cameras introduce two protagonists – prisoners, sentenced for life. Rolandas looks for romantic love and Rimantas patiently constructs arty motorcycle. They try to behave for hope to regain freedom. Is there any other way to reduce anger than to forgive? Even for the most painful crime.
