Section: Youth Film U18 Competition



Irma Pužauskaitė
LT/PL, 2022, 93 Min

A stirring coming-of-age portrait of two teenagers, one of whom, Linas, is already 40 and the father of the other. Linas is in the process of recovering from his alcohol addiction when his daughter Eve turns his life upside down whilst her friend Maya, on the search for her first great love affair, turns both of their heads.

Caught somewhere between mid-life crisis and his conquered addiction, Linas just about manages to prevent his life from sinking into complete chaos and to resist the daily temptations of drink. And yet when his teenage daughter Eve, after a night of excess, is ordered to live with him and brings her highly flirtatious friend Maya in tow, Linas' steadfastness is put to the test; in every sense. Thus begins a fascinating and touchingly narrated rollercoaster ride of emotions, one on which traditional roles become blurred and the situation soon becomes a little too intimate for everyone involved. In this, her vibrant debut film, Irma Pužauskaitė tells the story of a trio that is forced to confront problems that they have suppressed for too long.
