Synopsis

12-year-old Raimonds does what he can to make his strict mother proud – he even plays the saxophone in the school band instead of riding his kickboard in a skate park. When he tries to cover up a bad note at school, a spiral of lies is started, which soon spins out of control.
Thanks to his friend Peteris, whose mother is a cleaner, Raimonds gets hold of the keys to a fancy apartment and wants to spend the night there. Unfortunately, the owner comes back home with a girl, who not only robs him but also takes Raimonds’ saxophone. The boy has to venture into the night Riga to get the instrument back. When Pateris is accused of robbing the flat, Raimonds has to decide whether to save his friendship or his face in front of the mother. An exciting story about the healing power of truth.
