Girl and Boy

Girl and Boy

The movie recounts the adventures of Tosia and Tomek – almost-identical twins with very different personalities – who accidentally swap roles during the holidays. Disguised as her brother, Tosia goes to spend her vacation in a cabin in the forest, where she must display plenty of courage. Meanwhile, Tomek, impersonating his sister, is sent to spend his holidays with an aunt in the country. However, pretending to be a girl, Tomek proves incapable of conforming, and becomes the leader of a girls’ gang, taking part in catapult-shooting and distance-spitting contests.
