Mes gyvenimų nepagailėjom, o tu „skūpi“ dujų.

The Trans-Siberian pipeline, built in 1983, became a fundamental milestone in the oil and gas industry, connecting the supplies of Wester Siberia with European consumers. Renowned Ukrainian documentarist Vitaly Mansky sets off along the route of the pipeline to find out what it’s like for ordinary people living in its vicinity. This visually refined road movie is an unsettling portrait of the legendary Trans-Siberian gas pipeline on which most of Europe is still reliant.
