The main hero of this film is the city of Vilnius. Vilnius is also a metaphor for the historicity of Lithuania. This film, however, is unique not only for its cinematographic reflections on the history and statehood of Lithuania but also for its treatment of the history of cinema – it encompasses both Russian (Soviet) montage techniques and the first traces of cinéma-vérité in Lithuanian cinema.
