Lukas Kacinauskas brings on the screen some aspects of the new way of meeting up, in the time of digital apps in the gay world, which are truthful and taken form personal experiences. He talks about the new and only way to meet new people in the era of covid and social networks in a intelligent, well written and well acted way.

I Was Max: One evening that means a lot for Max. It’s the first time he dares to go on a date arranged on the internet. The moment he gets into Tadas’s car, he embarks on a journey into the unknown. A sensitive look at the process of self-acceptance, at the moment when we have to stop hiding and to accept responsibility for who we truly are – and not to be ashamed of it.
