Synopsis

Vilnius Trolleybus Park is sold to a young investor, who wants to change trolleybuses to more convenient high-tech, wireless, pilotless vehicles. Needless to say, that this high-tech wonder will require very little maintenance, so the drivers and supporting staff will be fired.

But it is way more than that. Without the old trolleybuses the city is never going to be the same. And in this darkest hour the hero arises. An ex-mechanic who shall fight the technical revolution to save the heritage of trolleybuses. And although he is not suited to be a superhero- he will do his best to drive the capitalist oppressors away.
