How Deep Is the Ocean?
Jak głęboki jest ocean?

subtitles: English


Tomasz Borkowy, Wojciech Solarz, Joanna Sydor, Krystyna Tkacz

Film description

Marek awakens in the stomach of a huge whale along with all the people he so loved, his wife who drowned in the sea so long ago and insane father wants to be called King of the Oceans. There are other, no less charismatic, companions there, all curious to learn how Marek came to join them. Just how did he come to join them? A visually fascinating and independent film about finding your inner freedom and the most real version of reality.
