TWO STEPS BEHIND...
POLISH TITLE: DWA KROKI ZA...
"And so begins that which I do not know, that whose further fate is unknown to me, for how can I know?
…Just as one can't see the end of the wide water while standing on its shore...". Edward Stachura (Cała jaskrawość/All That Brightness). Two Steps Behind… is a story of a farmer's family, and its main theme are partings, returns and goodbyes. It is a musical animated impression, which evidently refers to the issue of emigration, and is an attempt at answering the question "why?". Why did I decide to leave my home, my street, my place, my country?
