The Days that Confused is a story of a young man trying to make sense of life in the summer heat of late 1990s in Estonia. The 27-year-old protagonist Allar moves from one provincial party to another, meeting colorful characters and finding himself in evermore confusing circumstances. The amounting tension and absurdity of surrounding events lead Allar to give serious thought to his life. What follows is a frantic journey through midsummer Estonia to finally discover meaning in oneself.
