Zoology

Film stills

– O kur gi ji slepia savo uodegą? Jei velnio žymėta, turi būti uodega. Kur ją slepia?

– Į apatinius.

– Tokią ilgą uodegą į apatinius?

– Nieko, susitvarko.

A middle-aged zoo worker Natasha (actress Natalia Pavlenkova) still lives with her mother in a small coastal town. She is stuck and it seems that life has no surprises for her until one day… she grows a tail and turns her life around. Playful and even magical, Zoology is a mischievous tale about a tail and the consequences of being different.
