Jutro będzie lepiej (Tomorrow Will Be Better)
Three homeless Russian boys, living in a train station, decide to venture into the world, crossing borders – both metaphorically and literally. As most children, they are naive and mischievous. They search for the place where their greatest dreams, however simple, can come true. They search for a different life in a better world. An extraordinary journey by three little heroes. The great little heroes of our strange times.
