SYNOPSIS: Jeronimas, a 30-year-old village’s doctor finds a link to the hidden treasure of his childhood friend. But this treasure is at the bottom of the body of a pond and Jeronimas can not pull it out just by himself. Having made a lie about the treasure left by the landowner years ago, he asks for the help of the village’s elder. And he, in turn, concludes a contract with the tractor driver and leaves Jeronimas aside. Characters start to really believe in the idea of a hidden treasure. But they still do not know that what’s in the chest may not be what they expect.
