In this striking coming-of-age drama, 12-year-old Raimonds does what he can to make his strict, single mother proud – he even plays the saxophone in the school band instead of riding his scooter in a skate park. When he tries to cover up a bad behavior note from his school it sparks a spiral of lies that soon spins out of control.

Thanks to his friend Peteris, whose mother is a cleaning lady, Raimonds obtains the keys to a fancy apartment and tries to spend the night there. Unfortunately, the owner comes back home with a girl, who not only robs him but also takes Raimonds’ saxophone. The boy has to venture into nighttime Riga to get the instrument back.

“A treat… tells a fairly simple story in a very sophisticated way, proving the too-often forgotten truth that with good cinematic storytelling any tale can be tense, suspenseful and emotional… The drama and the tension feel absolutely real. [Konovalovs] gives a very detailed and emotionally layered performance.”
- Katie Walsh, Indiewire
