    • Synopsis
    • Kaspar Toporski is a young Polish filmmaker who moved far away from his home town when he was very young. He is willing to develop his projects in cinema and is in constant wait for answers. He passes his time drawing, writing and making up his own imaginary world, that day by day seems to be getting more and more real. He has always admired crocodiles, since he was a child, as he believes them to be perfect creatures, able to control the passing of time.
      Kaspar shares his thoughts with Helix, a young photographer interested in death and the capture of images. He is secretly in love with her. Kaspar also hangs out with Schulz, a mysterious doll maker who is obsessed by the theories about creation and dummies, elaborated by the Polish writer Bruno Schulz, and with Bertolt, a fellow filmmaker that never got over the failure of his first movie, destroyed by a short-sighted production team.
      To fix his ideas, Kaspar begins shooting a movie on himself, a sort of book of cinematic notes, made from drawings, pictures, short animations, sounds, words and music... made of dreams and nightmares.
      As time goes by, his movie takes shape but Kaspar increasingly grows away from the real world, until he eventually realizes that he himself is just a product of his own imagination.
