ONLY THE WIND

POLISH TITLE: TYLKO WIATR

A journey in search of childhood memories. A ninety-year-old man sets off on a trip with his granddaughter to Kazakhstan, where he was in exile as a child in the 1940s. The story captured in several faded photos will turn out extremely difficult to present as the man’s memory fails and time obliterates all the traces. Will the protagonists find a shadow of the past in the limitless Asian steppes? A warm family film about love and memory which proves that it makes sense to pursue your dreams, even if the final result falls short of your expectations.
