Content: The year was 1989, the last year of the Soviet era in the Baltic. In Lithuania, three adult friends set up Senekin Brotherhood, whose Senecine motto itself says, "Living every day as if it were the last one." Unfortunately, when all the Baltic nations begin to enjoy communion, the frustration of life breaks their community in a brutal way. 25 years later, when the Baltic states pass the post-crisis period of alienation, one of the former members of the Seneca Brotherhood, Simon, realizes that he has broken the ideals of his youth. Simon has become only a passive observer in the game of life and the circumstances in which he is forced to open him to open Pandora's box of his past.
