THE ERLPRINCE is the story of an exceptionally gifted teenage boy who has just started studying physics at university. He is working on the theory of parallel worlds, which he initially believes to be linked by light. He has an extraordinary mind and a wounded soul, which his authoritarian Mother, who steers his life, is incapable of healing. Then a Man appears in their lives and, as the Boy passes from the hands of the Mother into his care, a new order is established. Their torturous road forms a bond between the three central characters, but their shared happiness is not to last long. Approaching a solution to the problem of the passage between the worlds, the Boy initiates a journey, setting his life on the scales…
THE ERLPRINCE stars Staszek Cywka, Agnieszka Podsiadlik, Sebastian Łach, Bernhard Schütz, Bogusława Jantos, Emilia Stachurska, James Fordham and Anna Podolak.
The film is produced by Studio Munka-Stowarzyszenie and Filmowców Polskich in co-production with Telewizja Polska, Odra Film, Studio Produkcyjne Orka and co-financed by Polish Film Institute.
