Can a film become a vehicle for empathy? Stanisław is a painter and co-author of the film’s message, which is addressed to Staś, several dozen years his junior. The intimately shot scenes are not only a testimony to unique understanding between the people afflicted with a similar disability, but also about the lessons in the most common everyday matters: what to wear or how to react to intolerance towards people with disabilities.
