In the film, seven sports women who live in seven different Lithuanian cities speak about their opinions on the 'seven deadly sins' (Sloth, Pride, Wrath, Gluttony, Lust, Envy, Greed) from a contemporary perspective. The sports women are metaphorically locked in a set of duels, reflective of the competitive nature of the sports they pursue, and in an inner-fight between their manichean personalities that entwine - darkness and light. This duality, and battle, is a constant in both art and life. The documentary explores and portrays a contemporary heroin, and heroism, pitched against the interior legend of persistent work and practice.
In the context of current socio-economic crisis, this documentary was inspired by Kurt Weill and Bertolt Brecht's 1933 ballet chanté, a ballet with singing. 'The seven Deadly Sins', which portrays two sisters (that is, a two part personality) who travel to seven different cities in search of their fortune during the Great Depression.
