Seventeen-year-old Sangaile dreams of flying but has a terrible fear of heights. At an air-show she meets a peer named Auste. Flirtatious and confident, Auste is a complete opposite of Sangaile; however, Auste earns Sangaile’s trust and learns her biggest secret. Auste’s love encourages Sangaile to conquer her fear and give herself to flying, in many senses of the word.
Alanté Kavaïté’s sensual tale about the first love received the Best Director award at the Sundance Festival and the Lithuanian film prize “The Silver Crane” as the year’s best film.
