It’s a story of a middle-aged man who decides to kill himself but is rescued by a heart attack. As Liudas is laying on the ground without any signs of life, the street around him is lively as usual. Nobody including an ambulance driving by pays any attention to Liudas, whose “golden minutes” are ticking away.
