The Weather Forecast

The Weather Forecast


Antoni Krauze

1982, 1 h 26 min

Autumn of 1981. A group of nursing home patients hear a ghastly weather forecast for the upcoming winter. Considering the economic crisis, the elderly may not survive. The very same night, a truck delivers a transport of coffins. Watching the caskets moved to the attic, the patients connect the dots with an increasing fear: it seems that the management is unable to help all of them through the winter and wants to kill a few off. The decision is unanimous. They flee the home in a panic.
