Story

A hand-drawn animation movie about Podlasian dialect. The Podlasian dialect is one of the most characteristic and recognizable of Poland. It is a regional value, which Podlasian people should emphasize and cultivate. This value puts Podlasian people apart from the whole country. The movie shows the atmosphere of this part of Poland in an unconventional way and reminds us that we should take care of local values in order to keep them alive. The film was created as part of the scholarship of the President of the City of Bialystok.
