  • Poland
Audio Tracks 

Piotr is serving a long term prison sentence. Today for the first time in many years he has been released on a three-day probation. The austere reality of prison that he grew attached to cannot be compared to the world outside brimming with possibilities and unlimited choices. Lost and astonished but still fascinated by everything that surrounds him, he is trying to understand today’s world. Yet his most difficult task will be facing his life once again, looking back to what has passed and appraise his future capabilities, and finally, to choose what would be best for him. Although he cannot hope for much, there is still something that can be changed. What will he do with those three short days of freedom?
