Mieczysław and Alfons Kułakowski are two brothers around 90 years old who share a home in a sparsely populated area of Poland. Their lives have been difficult. When they were children, they were deported with their families to Siberia. In the 1940s, they managed to escape and then lived in different places in the former USSR. Mieczysław worked as a cartographer and Alfons was a respected painter. They returned to their former homeland in the late 1990s. Now that they are back in their ancestral house, they do not depend on outside help, but rely on and help each other. Here, we learn about their past, while intimately observing their daily routines.
