Obtaining a degree in Polish studies is a prestigious affair in Japan. Every year, only 15 students are recruited to learn not only the language but also the different Polish culture and mentality.

"I love the Polish accent. Even though I don't understand anything, it sounds pretty intelligent." A humorous documentary about the uncomfortable growing up of students at the University of Tokyo, who spend most of the day overwhelmed with their studies, struggling with the pronunciation of digraphs or rehearsing a performance of Faust in Polish. What is it like to get to know a country that is geographically and culturally so remote only through textbooks? In the second year, a handful of students finally travel to Poland at their own expense. Their enthusiasm encounters both different customs and good-natured locals trying to explain why they consider kebab their national dish. What the students have been dutifully reading at home for the past year takes on unexpected dimensions at sunset over the Vistula.
