An enigmatic, symbolic, puzzling fantasy about a young shepherd named Jakub (Janusz Michalowski) and a palace, this story was directed by Junak Tadeusz. Set at the end of World War II, the action starts when Jakub decides to finally walk into a palace that has intrigued him since he was a young child. Once inside the large structure, he seems to have entered a dream world. He comes across characters who force him into resolving life-threatening situations, though it is never quite clear why. Perhaps Polish audiences would derive more meaning from this culturally-bound philosophical journey.
