Is it likely that in a godforsaken small town you can still meet a witch? Does a pig bring good luck and can deliver a man from diseases? Ed, a cynical and jaded political figure leaves Warsaw and comes to a small town to solicit for votes and strike a dodgy deal with a local mayor. Magical rites performed by mayor’s housekeeper accompanied by his daughter, an episode with a drowned body and a peculiar friendship with a pig will change his live forever.
