In these two separate though proximate stories, Darek and Magda live outside society, wandering the world like two lost souls, while a man employed in a shoe factory badly wants to change his life. The script for this short film is an adaptation of a story by three authors Piotr Litwin, Gabriel Herrer and director Joaquín del Paso.
