The film is about Sharunas Bartas, one of the best known and recognized Lithuanian directors outside the country. As a young man, I came to Vilnius 10 years ago to work with Lithuanian master filmmaker Sharunas Bartas. I wanted to discover what made Bartas' films so exceptional, with a unique balance of visual contemplation and dissolved narration. I lived in a corner of his "studio", an old wooden house in the middle of the forest, and bits by bits started to get inside his elusive creative process. But the full picture was missing. In order to put things together, I needed to come back.
