December 16th, 4 p.m. CET

The magical story begins when one day two stars fall out of the sky. They land in a world where their appearance and behavior don't go well with everything surrounding them. There's law and order here, everything is the same shape and color. The characters reluctantly look farther than the tips of their own noses (even if instead of them they have angles and ledges). What is going to change in the light of the shooting stars? In the witty story, full of song and dance, Grażyna Lutosławska asks serious and important questions. Why do we feel good when everyone around us is exactly the same? Is it really difficult to communicate with those who look different and think in different ways? Wouldn't it be good to sometimes look beyond our own happy bubble to get to know ourselves better and notice the colors that we didn't even know existed?
