Just before the outbreak of the war in Ukraine, professor Filip Bajon announces the end-of-the-year movie theme for 2nd year film directing students - it’s going to be an adaptation of “Master and Margarita”. Hekele’s screenplay was written just after Russian aggression and became somehow the author’s response to the surrounding reality, narrated through the mood and style of the great Bulgakov's novel. However, "Hekele" is not an attempt to assess moral situation, it does not represent the current situation and also it does not position itself on either side - it is rather a story about a war in general. This is not a reporter’s story either but rather a symbolic puzzle in which participated both the best polish actors and amateurs.
