HEADFISH

SAMOGŁÓW

Gloomy milking parlor filled with sounds of Bach concertos from crackling speakers—this is the everyday life of Eryk, a cow milker at the Milky Paradise dairy. Eryk is a young man who gave up his career as a photographer and moved to an industrial town, far away from his family and friends. There he met Marissa, a sex worker in a low-grade nightclub. They became friends. They both want to find their place in the world.
