HUGO

Zdzisław Misiak, known as Dzidek, is the retired king of amusement parks. After his daughter's death his 7 year-old grandson Hugo comes to live with him in one of the left over barracks. In the enchanting surroundings of the amusement park a bond grows between the boy and his grandfather. This helps them both heal wounds caused by their tragic loss. But this cannot last. Soon, they are brought to the attention of the System and the peace of Dzidek-land is disturbed.

Hugo is a film about love and the courage to live this life by one’s own rules, and to undermine traditional upbringing models in which most of us are still entrapped.
