“This is Lipiny. There is no future here. You can get killed if you don’t give somebody a cigarette”. Lipiny is a sootblackened industrial area reputed to be the poorest city in southern Poland. Here, everybody knows the basic truths: “films are better than life” and “dreams are not important, as they never come true”. But Daniel won’t let small-town malaise crush his dreams. With a mobile phone camera in hand, and carrying the advice of his spirited Grandmother, he roams the streets asking locals questions about their dreams. But will they ever come true?
