- Synopsis / Plot
- The film presents a poetic, visually refined "journey through the convolutions of time" as experienced by the protagonist, Joseph (Jan Nowicki). The young Joseph finds himself travelling through a dream-like world, taking a dilapidated train to visit his dying father in a sanatorium. When he arrives at the hospital, he finds the entire facility is going to ruin and no one seems to be in charge, or even caring for the patients. Time appears to behave in unpredictable ways, reanimating the past in an elaborated artificial caprice.
