THE WEIGHT OF ELEPHANTS

Film stills

Aš tavęs nepaliksiu, Adrianai. Visada būsiu šalia. Kiek tik tu norėsi. Pažadu.

Adrian, 10, a sensitive and lonely boy, abandoned by his mum at an early age to live with his grandmother and his sick uncle, finds meaning in an unlikely friendship with Nicole, 10, a crazy, mysterious outsider, who just moved in across the street and who just might be one of the abducted children that they keep talking about on the telly.
