Trailer

Young provincial girl Vilė comes to the big town with ambitions about high education. She tries to find a rented apartment for living and notices a hand-made sticker with anarchy signs on it. Led by strange sticker Vilė meets boyish looking and always wearing a T-Shirt with anarchy sign on it girl Sandra. Mutual sympathy and Vilė becomes Sandra’s tenant. From her first days in the big town Vilė gets a perfect guide — always strong and optimistic Sandra. Under her anarchistic philosophy’s leadership Vilė leisurely throws away her provincial modesty and fears, but incidental meeting with member of big town’s punk community overturn all her new views. Vilė understands that Sandra’s anarchy has nothing to do with alternative underground culture or politics…
