HERCULES VENTURES INTO THE WORLD

POLISH TITLE: HERKULES WYRUSZA W ŚWIAT

 Twelve year old Krzyś who supports his unemployed parents by collecting scrap metal was a hero of the film Hercules. After they had seen the film, the two young people, Sergiusz and Kasia, were so moved by the boy’s fate that they decided to help him. They took him on holiday, first to Warsaw where they live and then to the seaside. The odds are that it was not a one-off example of help and the boy’s fate will improve considerably in the future.
