Magdalena Seweryn & Igor Polaniewicz


The Last Tale About Earth is a story of a father and his two children, who try to survive in a post-apocalyptic world. Everything in their surroundings seems to suggest they are the only people on Earth. They live in an underground shelter in the woods, and due to air contamination they never go outside without protective clothing. A mysterious signal from the outside, seen only by the girl, becomes their motivation to face whatever it is that hides beyond their known world.
