Poster of "The Dress" by Plakiat
Julia lives in the Polish countryside. Her music is death metal. Her favorite pastime: playing on slot machines. She works at a wayside motel for drivers. She’s lonely, she never had a man, never experienced physicality. Julia is short stature and her entire life is dictated by her height – the local community can’t seem to accept her different appearance. Everything changes, when she crosses paths with a handsome truck driver. Their eyes meet. Julia’s heart beats faster. The man soon becomes the object of her loving, almost erotic obsession...
