In a faraway place, far from urban arteries, a man assembles his watermelon stall. Scarce local drivers pass him by unconcerned. Only tourists stop to take a photo with such peculiar attraction. The business can, by no means, be profitable and if this was not enough, on the other side of the gravel road competition appears. The film depicts one day from a watermelon seller’s life.

A student of Cinematography Faculty at The Polish National  Film, Television and Theatre School in Lodz. Worked as a cinematographer and a director on numerous student films. He is also a photographer and has featured his works in, inter alia, Georgia, Azerbaijan and Russia.
