Anthology of the Plot
This film is about a time that is lost forever. In 1995-1996, the cult cafe Suokalbis (meaning The Plot) in Vilnius, was already losing its splendour, but still served as a gathering place for artists of every age, recognised and unknown, students of all kinds and, of course, random visitors. Back then, ashtrays were overflowing with cigarette butts, bottles were quickly drained, and stormy discussions and dances lasted until dawn. Come the 21st century, café communities like Suokalbis were pushed aside by the rising club culture, and disappeared like alcohol vapours and tobacco smoke.
