Storyline

Martyna and Kamilė are young women in their mid-twenties. They used to be best friends during their studies. About half a year ago, Martyna decided to vanish from Kamilė’s life. But she didn't tell it to her friend. One day Martyna is on her way to meet her co-workers, she is passing through the parking lot of a shopping center in a rush. She meets Kamilė, who wants to find out the reasons for Martyna‘s disappearance.
