Story outline of a feature film based on a book “Underground” by A.Sileika
An early autumn morning in 1961, a train lurches into the Valkininkai train station. The passengers spill out onto the platform and quickly disappear, leaving one weary man with a small suitcase in his hand.
In the dusty station square, he stops a truck driver and asks for a ride to the Jewish pine forest. Even without payment, the driver agrees.
“Fifteen years I haven’t been there,” says the man, already seated in the cab.
“I understand,” answered the driver, as he spits out the window.
