ANTONIO IN RADOM
POLISH TITLE: ANTONIO W RADOMIU
"Antonio in Radom" is a story of picturesque meetings of Antonio and the people of the Polish city of Radom - all of them full of misunderstandings. Antonio will come from Italy to open a local business that will serve as a pretext to meet in Radom's cafes and have some Italian specialties. He will initiate group endeavours and get into personal relationships, all that speaking only Polish - a language that he doesn't have any command of. The absurdity of the idea to promote locally made mozzarella in Radom will save Antonio from becoming competition for the local businessmen that he'll meet. He will however be a newcomer who will freely position himself as authority and express his long hidden complexes, fears and worries. That way Antonio will be more of a moving therapist than a businessman and he will also be a researcher in the land of provincial entrepreneurship and local exotics.
