The year 1992. Lithuania has become independent. One day a factory worker Danguole draws lots and wins a Special Prize in a lottery in her factory. This means she will be entitled to welcome an American press-photographer who is coming to Lithuania in three days. She and her family are to represent the New Lithuania to the world in a photo reportage to be issued. This way the factory worker Danguole becomes a kind of a Lithuanian ambassador. Obviously, everything she owns is dated, soviet-tinged and cannot represent anything. The New Lithuania should be newly fashioned. The problem is… what exactly does the “newly fashioned” mean?
