This film continues the tradition of Lithuanian poetic documentary. It details the dismantling of Lithuania’s old railway “Siaurukas” and the construction of its new modern replacement. The old railway and its modern counterpart become the symbol of the clash between the archaic rural Lithuania and Soviet industrialization. The film was often considered as an expression of the archetypes of Lithuanian character.
