    • Synopsis
    • The main character Rafal Mularz is a stranger by choice. He does not act according to generally accepted rules. His alienation is a matter of choosen way of life, it is an escape from the fears, desires, dreams and ambitions. One day he
      meets a man more alien than himself – Stranger by definition.
      The film builds a portrait not only of the main character, but also of contemporary society, which usually points the finger at any otherness. What does it mean to encounter a Stranger?
      That is the question faced by the film’s protagonist, a man
      detached from the world around him, and also by countries
      such as Poland – xenophobic, and refusing to take on their
      share of responsibility.
