Our Father (Tėve, mūsų) (2010)

  • Runtime: 28 min
  • Country: Lithuania
  • Language: Lithuanian
  • In Colour

At first it seems that Liza and her children do their daily routine in their ordinary poorly set flat. The boys-Tomas and Edgaras – are watching TV, the teenager daughter Kristina is cooking, the mother is writing a letter. The family is waiting for the father to come back. Soon he comes and brings food and leaves shortly after, since this is not an ordinary flat. It is a basement, from which Liza and her children will never be able to escape.
