Chleb i sól

Bread and Salt

Inspired by true events, played by non-professionals. Tymek, a young, talented pianist, student of the Warsaw Academy of Music, returns to his small hometown for a vacation, a place where time has stood still. The central meeting point for local youths is the newly created kebab bar. Tymek witnesses a growing conflict between Arab kebab workers and his colleagues from the neighbourhood. A conflict that will turn out to be tragic. (Venice International Film Festival)
