What Sun Has Seen
Scorching July in a big Silesian city. There are three people who don’t know each other closely: little Sebastian, teenage Marta and a 50-year-old Józef. Each of them is forced to quickly find a small but currently unobtainable sum of money. Three parallel and interconnected stories about the people who are determined to face the everyday life in order to keep their dignity, dreams and change their lives. It’s the record of their passion, bravery and strength. All three stories are not authentic but the script is based on the newspaper articles, gossips, police reports, peeped scenes and overheard dialogues.
