Boys with Butterflies

Chłopcy z Motylkami

Poland, 2018, 28 min, Colour

15-year-old Filip gets beaten up on a footbridge close to his neighbourhood. To retaliate, his father rents a billboard in the middle of the housing estate with the information about a reward for helping to find the thugs. He starts a local war, which Filip does not want to be part of. A simple coming-of-age story inspired by true events from the reportage „Boys with Butterflies” by Jacek Hugo-Bader.
