2017 | fiction | 13 min. | Lithuania

As the maternal day approaches, 16-year-old Nerka is traditionally going out with his friends to steal flowers for their mothers. But this time everything is different – it’s been a year since Nerka’s mother lost the right to raise her son and disappeared without knowledge. Nevertheless, the boy is determined to find her. This journey reveals an unexpected truth – Nerka’s mother seems to have embarked on a new stage of life and no longer wants to go home.
