Marija is devoted to her troubled boyfriend Vytas, a brilliant PhD candidate who has previously been hospitalized for bipolar disorder. Early one morning, Vytas experiences a psychotic episode and suddenly goes missing. In this pulse-pounding thriller, Marija will spend the next 24 hours hurtling back and forth across Vilnius, Lithuania’s capital. Desperate to find him before he hurts himself or someone else, Marija must also deal with her own precarious medical condition and repeated calls from her mother ordering her to see a doctor. “An 87-minute-long anxiety attack masquerading as a movie—but in a good way—Lithuanian filmmaker Andrius Blaževičius’s sophomore feature is a kinetic portrayal of an extraordinary young woman paradoxically trapped at a psychological impasse … For all its adrenalized, blood-rush rhythms, Runner [is] remarkably humane” (Jessica Kiang, Variety). Winner of the Best Baltic Film Award at the Black Nights Film Festival in Tallinn and Best Film at the Riga International Film Festival.
