We proudly present the winner of the 2nd Edition Baumi Script Development Award:

Kuba Czekaj

Jan Kowalski, an average Polish fortysomething, is a dancer in a folk song & dance ensemble. Kowalski dreams of becoming the principal dancer, but is still only dancing in the second row. Incapable of assertiveness, he keeps declaring his desire for change. A tour by the ensemble to Taiwan might finally bring about the longed-for changes. He wants to find answers to his questions during this journey into the unknown, to a mysterious and exotic land. But it all turns out quite differently when he realises that escaping doesn't change anything. At the end, he returns to Poland and finds an inner strength and readiness to take up the fight.
