When Shrovetide, Lithuanians wear masks of devils, gypsies and Jews, yelling: “Winter winter, leave the yard!”.The ritual is an old way for driving out darkness, cold and the devil.And the way to get rid of a Jew, perhaps? Or several hundred thousand of Jews? The fact that a new word in the Lithuanian language was coined – ‘žydšaudys’ (a Jew-Shooter) – means thatsomething had happened, and that something requires close observation.This is a film about the (un)known truth of World War II based on eyewitnesses’ memories.
