The Land is a film composed of six separate dark comedy-dramas showing contemporary Poland in a humorous way. While each of them can exist as an independent story, they easily blend into a cohesive whole. All of them are based on seemingly ordinary situations which soon take an unexpected turn, driving the characters to the end of their tether.
