MIDPOINT Intensive Lithuania is here!


This is the story of an eight-year-old boy named Juozapas, who is one in a million because he was born with his heart outside of his chest and survived. His heart is protected by a glass dome and thick armor. The physical disability of the main character, Juozapas, and his more sensitive inner world make it hard and painful for him to overcome the long-standing relationship routine, insensitivity and lack of observation in society. When his classmate, Rugilė, appears in Juozapas’s life, she helps him break free from his reticence and open up. Juozapas and Rugilė’s subtle inner world overcomes exclusion and the insensitivity of the people around them. Their classmates finally notice that not only is Juozapas different, but that he is also a talented singer.
