We Have One Heart

Poland / 2020 / documentary / 11' / National Competition

A moving animated story about memory, loss and the search for one's roots. A story of the great love between a Polish student and an Iraqi Kurd interrupted by a war. It is also the chronicle of the generation growing up at the end of the communist era in Poland and of the gradual discovery of family secrets. But first and foremost, this warm film, made from the child's perspective, is a tale about the strength of family ties which can survive the weirdest twists of fate.
