It is a story of modern Silesia and its people, unemployment, poverty, hopelessness. “Silesia is going down the drain. There is no future here,” complains an unemployed man. “Silesia is Silesia, I will not let it be taken away from me,” says an older woman with a local accent. “The most important thing is to never give up, fuck, never,” blurts out a young boy who wants to become a rapper. All of them will probably meet at the annual Corpus Christi procession.
