Miracle in Krakow

Miracle in Krakow


Diana Groó

2004, 1 h 34 min

Piotr’s beloved grandmother Mancika is 86-year-old and lives in an old Jewish district of Budapest where she takes care of her grandson. Besides Piotr, she also loves books and looks for those that went missing from Krakow library during the war. One book is especially important. It belonged to a rabbi who resurrected people. The grandmother dies and Piotr moves to Krakow where the community of Kazimierz looks after him. The boy grows up and lives alone. He loves books just like his grandma. One day, he meets a girl from Budapest who owns the wondrous book they’ve been looking for the whole life. Piotr steals it. From that moment, he experiences miracles and even meets a rabbi who helps him contact the dead grandmother.
