In the film, seven sports women who live in seven different Lithuanian  cities speak about their opinions on the ‘seven deadly sins’ (Sloth,  Pride, Wrath, Gluttony, Lust, Envy, and Greed) from a contemporary  perspective. The sports women are metaphorically locked in a set of  duels, reflective of the competitive nature of the sports they pursue,  and in an inner-fight between their Manichean personalities that  entwine – darkness and light. This duality, and battle, is a constant  in both art and life. The documentary explores and portrays a contemporary heroine, and heroism, pitched against the interior legend  of persistent work and practice.

In the context of current socio-economic crisis, this documentary was inspired by Kurt Weill and Bertolt Brecht’s 1933 ballet chanté, a ballet with singing, “The Seven Deadly Sins” (“Die sieben Todsünden”), which portrays two sisters (that is, a two part personality) who travel to seven different cities in search of their fortune during the Great Depression.
