Description

A young Pole in a Canadian internment camp during World War I becomes obsessed with a female visitor. A contemporary young woman's baby develops a mysterious illness while her own life is invaded by dreams of a homesick Norwegian princess from the 14th century. The father of a British child disappears on the Canadian frontier in the early 1950s.

Luminous, sensual, haunting, "City of Orphans" weaves fantasy and reality together into stories of dreamlike intensity and hypnotic visual power.
