After her boyfriend suffers a psychotic break and flees their apartment, Marija (Žygimantė Elena Jakštaitė) desperately tracks him across the city in a bid to keep him safe. Pounding the pavement, she hits up his friends, family and colleagues for clues to his whereabouts. But her determination has a cost, as she risks her own health and sanity in pursuit of her beloved. Jakštaitė is a major discovery, earning comparisons to Jennifer Lawrence in the press and a spot in the prestigious European Shooting Stars program at this year's Berlinale. Equal parts RUN LOLA RUN and UNCUT GEMS, Marija's desperate journey across the city is a fast-paced, anxiety-riddled thrill ride boosted by a glitchy electronic soundtrack and handheld camerawork.
