EN - People aren’t important - or are they? This is the question that plays on the mind of our main protagonist Krolik, a young man with Downs Syndrome and also the narrator of his own story. Krolik has two brothers who are very different: Lukasz, the eldest, spends his days racing cars at an abandoned airport in Warsaw, while Michal is disinterested in his brother’s world and is only passing through. Michal’s presence stirs up an emotion in Krolik - one that is difficult to convey. Will he and his brothers ever really be together?
