A Piece of Summer

Marta Minorowicz


It’s the last days of the summer holidays. A grandfather, who lives and works in the Bieszczady Mountains, awaits the arrival of his grandson who comes from an entirely different world. Surrounded by the natural wilderness of the Carpathians, they try to get to know one another other better. The camera closely observes, at a slow and subtle pace, their developing relationship to one another and their respective lifestyles.
