Stop-motion animation on the arranging of marriages in 1950/60s set in the Eastern-Polish borderland. The script is based on a part of Mikolaj Smyk’s diary — the director’s grandfather. The biographical objects used in the animation, such as an authentic headscarf, Polish and Russian books, the copy of Mikolaj Smyk’s diary and photographs help situate the story in its original environment and express the atmosphere of the times.
