It would be difficult to describe the fascination Julek experienced when he saw the performance of the Krakow Choir for the first time. Despite his autism, he is not an "excluded hero". He participates. He comes to rehearsals, beats out the rythm, sings. At home, together with his mother, he learns the lyrics which often creates personal, emotional tensions. 'Julek' is a film about the need to fit into the world, despite the inherent sense of difference, loss and inevitable farewells.p>
