Raitis Abele, Lauris Abele
Brothers Robert and Martin are a month away from their biggest yet contemporary art exhibition. To get creative juices flowing, Martin locks himself in a dark black 2 x 2-meter cube. Once out, his focus shifts and he decides to save the environment by finding Soviet Military chemical waste that was dropped in the Baltic Sea in the 90s.
But through a series of strange ideas and sleepless nights, both brothers lose control over their artwork and their brotherhood.
Martins’ behavior at an alarming rate has become extravagant and tensions between the brothers escalate to a troubled state.
To seek tranquility Martin escapes to the very edge of the world – Northern Saami Lapland. Robert is forced to take a trip to find his eldest but a bipolar and disordered brother.
On the return Martin is institutionalized and Robert takes over ‘Don Quixote's role to perform almost an art terror act at the Grand Opening.
