This animated feature film is a gripping story of a three-month-long trip that renowned reporter Ryszard Kapuściński took across Angola, a country ravaged by a war in which the front lines shifted like a kaleidoscope from one day to the next.
Warsaw, 1975. Kapuściński (43) is a brilliant veteran journalist, an idealist and a friend of lost causes and revolutions. At the Polish press agency, he convinces his boss to send him to Angola, where a bloody civil war has broken out on the eve of the country’s independence. He embarks on a seemingly suicidal road trip into the heart of the civil war. There, he witnesses once again the dirty reality of war, and discovers a sense of helplessness previously unknown to him. Angola will change him forever: it was a reporter that left Poland, but it was a writer that returned.
