17 years old Sangaile is fascinated by stunt planes. When she meets a girl her age at a summer aeronautical show she finds someone who understands her. Sangaile allows Auste to discover her most intimate secret and in the process finds the only person that truly encourages her to fly.

Shot to make the most of the stunning scenery, and with some truly dramatic aerial photography and two engaging central performances, the exhilarating atmosphere of long, lazy summers and first love is delicately, sensitively and beautifully unfolded.

The undisputed hit of the year and winner of the World Cinema Directing Award at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival.
