Synopsis

IEVA, a 22-year-old actress, comes back to her hometown Vilnius, capital of Lithuania, after four years spent in Hollywood. During her first twelve hours at home, Ieva sees her mom and friends who project their false expectations on her, picturing Ieva as a successful actress and America as the land of opportunity. Only to Tadas, her ex-boyfriend, Ieva reveals about her struggle in the U.S. As they walk down the streets of Vilnius, Ieva notices how much her city has changed. The cinema where Ieva fell in love with movies is now closed. Instead, a supermarket is about to be built. In order to reconnect with home Ieva has to accept the fact that nothing stays the same.
