‘I have always had the curiosity to look further’ – admits one of the greatest Polish actresses. Barbara Krafftówna takes the viewer on a visit to her magical land, inhabited by ghosts of the past, the Elderly Gentlemen’s Cabaret and, above all, by her unforgettable artistic creations for the theatre, TV series and films. The protagonist, with her inimitable voice, tells an intimate story in which she combines her experiences of a woman and an artist with the vivid imagination of a little girl, and Krafftówna’s own words are intertwined with lines from her roles.
