Country: Lithuania, Germany
Year: 1994
Duration: 80'

This film creates a mosaic of associated memories and pieces of experiences - images of lost relationships and of the search for new ties. It goes beyond the usual narrative logic and the everyday structures of the screenplay. In an apocalyptic world in which time, logic and traditional values seem to dissolve, the film creates the atmosphere of a corridor between the past and the present. There are many doors along the corridor, but nobody knows where these doors lead to.
