Having grown up first in Poland and then in Austria, Jola Wieczorek embarks on a search for the life she left behind in her old homeland. To accompany the poetic images she drafts a letter to her Polish alter ego, which remains a speculation, sometimes also a stereotype, away from the shared memories of early childhood. A dialogue with a faded mirror image.
