A scripted documentary. Seven-year old son of Marek Koterski is playing at war with toy soldiers. In his joyful humming the boy brings up both youth novel heroes as well as heroes of WWII present in collective imagination, also the one of children. “Airplanes and cars are exploding… Cars and people are exploding… the trees are breaking, people are on fire…” – the child is humming and imitating sounds of a bomb attack.
