CRUMBS OF LIFE

OKRUSZKI ŻYCIA

Absurd adventures of three people inhabitating the same small town by the sea. Una lives a quiet life with her hairy partner; the idyll is interrupted when, for unknown reasons, she starts feeling a peculiar anxiety about her own foot. G., who works on television, during his interview with a flock of plump ponies, is cursed by being spat on. Everything seems to be controlled by Faceless Man, who – to make matters worse – is probably acting in collusion with ponies.
