The film was created to commemorate the centenary of Lenin. However, the documentary is far from celebrating soviet ideology. In the film people who are one hundred years old talk about their lives. Their remembrances illuminate traditions and past of Lithuania. Film captures the feeling of the passing time and addresses the questions of human existence.

This film is part of the program "Landscapes of Forbidden Memory", curated by Audrius Stonys.
