How much do you need to pay a man to make him do the job he considers humiliating? Joko, the eponymous character, at first refuses to carry VIPs upon his back. Eventually, blackmailed by his mother and ridiculed at work, he agrees to serve foreign delegates. The decision has disastrous consequences. In this grotesque, Roland Topor-like plasticine animation, full of absurd and black humour, Izabela Plucińska returns yet again to expose human weaknesses. This time, using 600 dolls and 200 kilograms of plasticine, she shows the mechanisms of manipulation and social hierarchy. The film is presented in the national and international competitions.
