Time: 1 hr 20 min
Release date: 2008
Documentary
Poland

The film presents the story of a simple working-class Furman family. They have lived and worked for many generations in Łódź in a factory that once made this city the “Promised Land”, the capital of the European textile industry. After the fall of communism, members of this family lost their jobs and – at the same – time their place on earth. The French investment group renewed the ruins of the factory to open the largest shopping centre in Central Europe.

In the cinema version of the film for years, the director accompanied for five years those simple people who watched the changes taking place in contemporary Europe under their windows, while trying to preserve their dignity and find their place in a changing world. The cinema version tells the story of the City of Łódź and reveals the backstage of the creation of a great investment on a European scale.
