LV 201975' lv

Unable to deal with a personal crisis, Gatis is dealing with depression. He feels like he is burning out. By accident he ends up in a strange cult-type therapy group that seems to trigger his self healing process, though it feels like he is losing his sanity. Is he healing or going insane? 

This is a feature film debut of the award-winning director Kārlis Lesiņs, who received Best Student Film prize for Converts (Konvertīti, 2016) and Best Debut prize for Grandfather’s Father (Vectēva tēvs, 2017) at the Latvian National Film Award Lielais Kristaps.
