"Dust" is the study of the road which human body has to undergo from the moment of death to the funeral. In the film by Jakub Ratej, the stages of this road (dissection room, mortuary, cemetery) are contrasted with bureaucracy, which is also what happens to the deceased's possessions. The cold record of the fate of these material remains of a human being is an open form, in which you can write both the question about the sense of existence, as well as a meditation on the loneliness of people to whom nobody pays their last respects.
