    Based on a true story set on the Polish/German border. It is a tale of the rise and fall of Zyga, a young Polish man who wants to take charge of his life after the fall of communism, a time of chaos and moral anarchy. Zyga is obsessed with the 1957 movie “3:10 to Yuma” — a cowboy tale of lawless anarchy on the frontier. Movie star handsome with an easy grin, Zyga starts smuggling cigarettes at the behest of his auntie Halina, who runs a brothel and Yuma ring where the mayor is a regular. Zyga is a witness to the complete degradation of life around him. The promised land never comes to his home town, while the Germans across the border seem to have it all. Zyga crosses the border and engages in a petty crime he calls “yuma”. Back home, handing out stolen goods makes him a quick hero. Before Zyga realizes what is happening to him, money and power overtake his naive dreams of a better life. “Yuma” is a hugely engrossing, great sweeping saga of Good versus Evil, Polish Western style. 

  3. I have always admired people who take freedom to a whole other level. The older I get, the more I dream of leaving everything behind to wander the world aimlessly. Years ago, my favorite gypsy Kirsty Halliday did just that. She left her corporate job in Philly, for what she thought was a summer road trip in an RV. I watched her explore those parts of North America I always dreamed of seeing, like Yellowstone, Alaska, and then further and further into what I thought of as uninhabitable parts of the country. I kept asking her, When are you coming home? but it has been 4 years since I last saw her, and she “has no interest in being a regular person” again.

    She recently took a job in the Arctic circle, to fulfill her dream of seeing the Northern Lights, where she is working in the hospitality industry hosting tourists during their brief stays. Her first guests were Neil and Lauro Eckland, the crew from the Discovery Channel. They are filming a documentary of a team of U.S. Army veterans who will ride motorcycles from the Arctic Circle to the tip of South America, crossing the infamous Darien Gap in the process.
