A lavish historical film loosely inspired by the events of the Greater Poland Uprising, in which most of the action takes place in a fantasy realm created by the director. At the core of its plot lies a duel between two telephats – the demonic Dr. Abuse (Crispin Glover) and Rudolf Funk (Artur Krajewski) – who battle for the soul of Ignacy Jan Paderewski (Jan Frycz), who is coming back to his home country. Łukasz Barczyk takes a step back when talking about the only successful Polish uprising. He tackles the martirological outlook on our history in an amusing, sometimes even absurd way.
