POLISH TITLE: LATA ŚWIETLNE

REPRESENTED BY KFF

Vitali has always wanted to be a priest. There is only one thing left to do – according to the rules of the Eastern Orthodox Church, he needs to find a wife. Waiting for the change to come, he rents a flat with a friend from the seminary. They turn the two tiny rooms filled with books and icons into their own world, living beyond time and mundane rules. Years go by and Vitali’s family is still waiting for the return of the priest.
