“My intent was to make a film about a man, who is looking for ways to overcome all the obstacles in his life, or in other words, learn how to act as a responsible grown-up.” – Andrius Blaževičius
A provincial Lithuanian town facing the economic crisis of 2008 is the setting for this brooding, moody slacker film.
Vytas loses his job and his wife immediately insists he find a new job; after all they have two small children. Vytas is lost and spends his time preening his muscular physique and watching television. Instead of looking for a new job, Vytas starts searching for The Saint – a guy who claims he saw Jesus Christ in their town.
