Followed by Q + A with director Lina Luzyte and cast Barbora Bareikyte & Gabija Jaraminaite.

This coming-of-age film follows Monika, a thirteen year old Lithuanian girl living in Dublin. A passionate teenage singer, Monika lives with her mother Jolanta, a professional pianist who had to take a job in a local fish factory, and her heavily demented Granny who requires 247 care.

Monika keeps pushing Jolanta to continue music with her, convinced they will make it big one day. When they get an invitation to play in ‘The Castle’, the relationship becomes strained between optimist Monika and the pragmatic realist Jolanta, who sells their keyboard.
