Songs Poems Rituals

The film is a meeting with inhabitants of a small village situated in central Poland called Wieniawa. They are old people at the end of their journey who remember old songs, rituals, prayers that are forgotten now. Listening to their stories we travel back in time to the dreamland of their past. Old songs are sang. Prayers are told. Rituals saving lives are performed. All of that is accompanied by nature - a vital force which shaped lives of the villagers.
