MARIA IS NOT ALIVE

POLISH TITLE: MARIA NIE ŻYJE

A story suspended between drama and grotesque, humour and philosophy. Maria is dead, but she remains alive. She committed suicide but remains in her live body for a few days. Not knowing how she killed herself, she is looking for the reasons of her own death. She does not remember them. She observes what the world looks like without her. What now?
