"R. I became a fan of Barzdžiukaitė after her modern opera "Good Day!" Her documented famous cormorant colony in the Juodkrantė peninsula - today's metaphor, where atmospheric frenzy, irony and mental anthropocenic issues intertwine. ”(D. Raustytė)

Imagine a viewing platform where people see the dead forest. Thousands of black birds observe and hear tourists here. For some, a forest ravaged by cormorants resembles an atomic catastrophe, others cannot admire the beauty of this sight. "This film is one of the most amazing surprises for us - it is a synthesis of documentary about nature, a thriller, a comedy and a horror movie," said Sergio Fantas, one of the composers of the Locarno Film Festival.
