Both the title character and his grandfather, Zdzisław Misiak, earn the viewers’ favour from the very first moments. The film by Wojciech Klimala, recognised at the Warsaw Film Festival, shows a touching story of bonds forming between a grandfather and his 7-year-old grandson, of whom he takes care after his mother’s death. Hugo was born in Spain and his Chinese father is in prison. We watch the daily lives of Hugo and his grandfather who live in a barrack located in an old amusement park in the centre of the city, but at the same time somehow outside of it. They feel that the most important thing in life is the closeness of another human being. In the background we can observe the crisis of interpersonal relations, decline of family bonds and oppression of the social system.
