Igloo

A young woman Greta returns to Lithuania from abroad and finds out that her mother turned Greta‘s room into a hair salon. Unsure where to go, Greta sees a TV episode on igloos and decides to build one outside her mother‘s apartment building. Greta‘s igloo becomes the main issue of the neighborhood – not because it causes any inconvenience for the residents but simply because it annoys them.
