The Bible and the subway. Adam and Eve, here: Man and Woman, work hard in defective cars. Underground subway tunnel as a biblical paradise. They will also be apples and first kiss. The discovery of nudity and shame. Disobedience to a Superior (builder, architect, God …?) and the title fall. The new version of the biblical story. Funny, surprising, typically Polish, because this is the Warsaw subway with Russian cars and faulty gates. Again, everything starts from the beginning. This time without the heaven and light, without plants and animals, without the snake. The myth of lost paradise mixed with the reality of contemporary underground world under construction. Is it just a stage joke of Anthoni Ferency who lives nearby the subway or perhaps a catastrophic, grotesque vision of a new beginning of mankind? Or maybe both?
