THE ESCAPE

POLISH TITLE: UCIECZKA

It is a short film about suffering, trauma and devastation. Two protagonists, a mother and a son, are balancing on the verge between life and death, trying to save themselves and the world that they have remembered. The first-person perspective of the camera, brutal scenes, takes in darkness and disturbing music create the atmosphere of a gloomy horror. No puppet animation has ever been more frightening.
