The hero of this film is Monika – art critic, who after graduation of Vilnius Academy of Arts has been working as a flight attendant at the Emirates Airlines. She shows the instructions of safe trip in slow motion. A soundtrack is composed by appropriating the anthem of the European Union – “Ode to Joy” from the 9th Symphony by Ludwig van Beethoven. The music is slowed down two times; it becomes an ironic comment on a grand narrative of the “New Europe”.
