Synopsis : 9-year-old Agnieszka travels alone on a bus towards a distant country. Anxious about this journey into the unknown, she writes a letter to her friend. But her pencil falls and gets lost in the bus. Forced to overcome her shyness, Agnieszka wanders between the seats in search of the object, plunging into a fantastic universe populated by strange passengers, half humans, half beasts. Agnieszka discovers the vulnerability of lonely adults, torn away from their daily life and their families, but finally cherishing their dream of departure… What if this was what she was so afraid of?
