In the small, central Polish town of Aleksandrow Kujawski, the director of the local culture centre announces a competition. The theme...a creative presentation of your personal patriotic attitude. Entrants are free to demonstrate their creativity in whatever form they like; in song, recitation or gesture, by giving a speech or staging their piece. But entrants may only present their own, original work. The eleventh day of the eleventh month arrives...Poland’s Independence Day. On this day, the jury, consisting of the director, the mayor, a priest and a local poetess, will select the region’s number one patriot.
