Description

1992, Lithuania. Irena manages a small pig farm, but the switch from communism to capitalism catapults her business into turmoil. Her alcoholic husband is little help, and she has resigned herself to carrying the burden alone. Enter Bernardas, an American who offers a supposed “miracle” by promising to keep the farm alive. As Bernardas integrates himself into all aspects of Irena’s life, his intentions become less clear, and she soon begins to suspect his arrival may not be miraculous at all.

Moments of humor add levity to the story of Irena’s romantic and financial woes, and we as an audience are witness to Irena’s whirlwind of emotions as her business slips out from underneath her already shaky foundations. At its core, director Egle Vertelyte’s film makes for an endearingly strange tale of twisted intentions and the frailty of misplaced trust.
