Akin to Spark I, Spark II, Me Aluś..., this film was shot at a cemetery in Pabianice. In a similar way to Me Aluś..., the artist documents here a folk and naive poetic epitaph common to Catholic society. The rhymed gravestone sentences acquire an entirely different meaning from the one intended by their authors. Libera was planning to translate the film into Ancient Greek.
