Children are disappearing in Vynasik, the capital of a totalitarian communist state falling into ruins. Ajek Lynx, a private detective paid in vodka vouchers, searches through an urban wasteland hopelessly looking for the missing children. Along the way he encounters a diverse and strange cast of characters including a mysterious military officer, a young boy, his older oafish friend, a grieving mother, and an informant with no tongue. A bleak landscape of smoke stacks, abandoned factories, crumbling buildings and broken down trains provide the backdrop for his strange journey and search for the truth.
Director: Max Sturgeon
In Polish with English subtitles.
