”Komodo Dragons” is based on two parallel stories. First one is focused on the documentary observation of a group of autistic adults living at the Farm Life (a therapy center near Krakow) when the second one is a story about young parents Agata and Franek, who want to sacrifice their own son. We meet the characters in their everyday lives, works and ordinary behaviors, when in the same time theatrically shown story of Agata and Franek leads as to lawyer office where we question ourselves what may be sacrifice in the secular world. Film just follows the collision of intimate portrait of disabled persons and an uncomfortable human fantasy, deliberately not seeking the way out of the paradoxes that arise.
