“Southern Chronicles” is based on Rimantas Kmita’s novel of the same title. In the working-class neighborhood of the Lithuanian city of Siauliai, a few years after the restoration of the country’s independence, 17-year-old Rimants is more interested in playing rugby, listening to music and dealing on the black market with his friend Minde than studying for school. Rimants is certain that physical strength and money are essential for success in a changing, competitive society. But when he falls in love with the beautiful, middle-class Monika, his faith in love and the future is tested.
Eglė Vertelytė penned the script. The cast is led by young generation actors Džiugas Grinys,
