In the community gardens survived after the end of Soviet Union, a young Lithuanian emigrant spends summer holidays with his parents. An old wooden house bursts into flames and people look at the fire without doing anything. It is a story about a world that is disappearing and leaving no traces, and about a cold relationship between a father and a son, who have nothing to share anymore.
