The Dam The Little Soul

The film tells the story of three boys held at a correctional facility in Racibórz. We meet the protagonists at a reformatory, where they are deeply involved in theater and have naive dreams about getting out one day. Unfortunately, freedom turns out to be a difficult challenge for each of them. We follow the protagonists for 14 years of their lives.
