This film was created to commemorate the birth centenary of Lenin. The documentary, however, is far from celebrating Soviet ideology. In the film, villagers who have reached one hundred years old relive moments from their past lives. Their remembrances illuminate the traditions of Lithuania and its past. The film captures the feeling of the passing of time and addresses the questions of human existence.
