Story
Krzysztof, an 11 year old, faces his father’s decision to hide a Jewish boy from a nearby village in the family’s house. As the new boy prompts the father’s attention, Krzysztof develops a flammable jealousy towards the other boy, which reaches a dangerous peak and leads him to an irreversible act.
