Summary/Abstract: The allegorical film about a young Romanian victim of the Polish justice system is an upside-down dystopia, in the three-dimensional mirror of the real. A typical Kafkaesque character passes the path to death in a world that refuses to hear him. We see dystopia as a study method, not as a purpose for the analytical investigation. In addition, we do not start from the idea that this is the opposite of an ideal world, but it’s the utopia converted into a degraded version which unfolded badly. I applied two scales of understanding to a deep and challenging scenario: the sociological theories about the world as a dysfunctional mechanism and the archetypes of the contemporary imaginative.
