. The film is set in the Lithuanian capital of Vilnius. It is 1989 and the last year of Soviet rule. A group of teenage friends resolve to live each day as if it were their last, in a group they call “Seneca’s Fellowship”, named after the famous Roman philosopher. But when a love triangle breaks them up, it seems that their idealism is misplaced. A quarter of a century later, with disillusionment haunting his apparently successful life, one member of the group feels he has betrayed his youthful ideals and delves into a Pandora's box of memories.
