I GREW UP AS YOU SLEPT

POLISH TITLE: UROSŁAM, KIEDY SPAŁAŚ

REPRESENTED BY KFF

Karalina left Belarus, just like the overwhelming majority of her friends from music school. The lives of Belarussian intelligentsia members are portrayed in the form of a study of nostalgia – longing for their families, friends and the childhood they remember in idyllic colours. President Lukashenka declares on public television that there is a bright future ahead of the graduates of Belarussian schools, but the picture of the provinces seems to contradict this optimistic diagnosis. The only comfort is brought by a delivery truck with food, matches and vodka.
