The film presents the irony of history through events witnessed by a young man in Soviet-occupied Lithuania in the aftermath of World War II. In 1948, the country was enveloped in uncertainty, as a Partisan movement rages a battle against Communism. They do not fight on equal terms, but this desperate struggle will determine the future of the whole population. Communists take away land from landowners, but not everyone is happy, especially since the Communists are represented by the Soviet military. While some go into the mountains and take up arms against the Soviet army, a low-class man finds himself stuck between the Soviet military and the Partisan movement. At the age of discovery of life, Untė, a 19 year old; who is part of this movement, discovers violence and treachery. The lines are blurred between the burning passion of his youth and the cause for which he is fighting. He will invest himself wholeheartedly, even if it means losing his innocence.
