POLISH TITLE: PELIKAN
How would you react if one day, in a place utterly vulgar, over a greycollar of his coat there was a… pelican gazing at you? Why is it that an animal dresses up as a human and what does our world look like through his eyes? The plot of "Pelican" is based on a Finnish novel with the same title by Leena Krohn. It is a funny, yet moving story of a bird trying to become human, and a lonely boy for whom the unusual animal becomes the only friend.
