THE SNAILS

POLISH TITLE: ŚLIMAKI

REPRESENTED BY KFF

Andrzej decides to open a snail farm together with his friend. Despite the lack of experience, he believes in the success of the enterprise. Grzegorz Skalmowski from Pasłęk comes to the rescue; he is the Polish snail guru called ‘the Snail King’ and gives valuable advice. Preparations for the farm opening are in progress. During breaks at work, the men talk about life and death, love and friendship, which becomes the essence of the film and the snail grows to the proportion of the symbol of revival and eternal life.
