    • Synopsis
    • Poland, after the Second World War. Two brothers, Tadek and Andrzej, grow up without father, and their mother, so busy at work, do not notice when boys join a rowdy and anti-Semitic organization.
      Only, when during a fight one of the boys gets hurt, she realizes what is going on. Then she decides to leave Poland togather with her family and go to…Australia. At the end of the trip it comes out that the goal was not to reach Australia but Israel. Boys become conscious of their and their family roots.
      The film is a full of emotions but also humorous tentative of self statement, and in case of both kids as well as based on social stereotypes brings humoristic and brutal situations.
