It's the last days of the summer holidays. A grandfather, who lives and works in the Bieszczady Mountains, awaits the arrival of his grandson who comes from an entirely different world. Surrounded by the natural wilderness of the Carpathians, they try to get to know one another other better. The camera closely observes, at a slow and subtle pace, their developing relationship to one another and their respective lifestyles.


MARTE MINOROWICZ graduated in theatre history and English philology at the Jagiellonian University in Krakow and gained a diploma in film direction at the Andrzej Wajda Master School of Film Directing. For more than five years, she cooperated with TVN, a Polish TV channel, as a researcher and director of many social reports. For the Discovery History Channel, she researched, wrote and directed the documentary film The Angel of Death.
