Ten Reasons

„Ten reasons“ („Dešimt priežasčių“)

2011 | fiction | 30 min. | Lithuania

Vytas is a resident of a blocked houses quarter and he is just as dull as his neighborhood. Though the young guy is over his twenties, he still lives with his parents – spending their days watching TV. Vytas’ girlfriend Ona is a bit different – she is independent, knows her likes and dislikes, has some friends – one of which she starts seeing more and more often. This leaves no sunshine in Vytas life at all and makes him wander for the truth in the maze of the blocked houses quarter.
