POLISH TITLE: NIESTETY
A parable of an elderly pair of angels – happy, kind-hearted and always complaisant. One night they both have the same dream: that they are young again. Unexpected events and the dark corners of the dream dumbfound the old folks. Eventually, however, the dawn comes... The whole oneiric story follows the rhythm of Tomasz Stanko’s suggestive music.
