Postcards from the Republic of the Absurd
Warsaw, 20 February 2014. Anna comes to the capital of Poland. She is a young Swedish director who intends to make a documentary film about the life of her peers in the country where the Round Table initiative failed and for seventy years, there has continuously been communism. The girl meets Maria, Julia and Karol who, not minding the consequences, tell her about their everyday life in Warsaw.
