The special screening will cover four short films showed at, among others, T-Mobile New Horizons International Film Festival, Film and Art Festival ‘Two Riversides’ in Kazimierz Dolny and Janowiec as well as Lubuskie Film Summer.

During their annual holiday in the mountains they meet a couple of young tourists. The accidental encounter will prove to be fateful, leading to a surprising finale…
