The film tells the story of 17-year-old Sangaile who is fascinated by stunt planes. She meets a girl her age at the summer aeronautical show near her parents’ lakeside villa. Sangaile allows Auste to discover her most intimate secret and in the process finds in her teenage love, the only person who truly encourages her to fly.

The film features Julija Steponaitytė (as Sangaile) and Aistė Diržiūtė (as Auste). 23-years-old Aistė Diržiūtė is also among the ten talented newcomer actors selected for the European Shooting Stars 2015.

Last month it was announced that the film was selected for the Sundance Film Festival’s World Cinema Dramatic Competition where it will have its world première and will be screened on the first day of the festival.

The film is produced by Fralita Films (Lithuania) and Les Films d’Antoine (France) and co-produced by Viking Film (the Netherlands).
