Dumpling Gate [pl. Kluskowa Brama] …or the story that egotism never pays off, and the exploitation of others will always be punished… A film adaptation of the Wrocław legend about a gate with a fossilised noodle. One Master liked Silesian noodles cooked by his wife above all else. The noodles were very tasty and their scent spread throughout the marketplace. Even the mayor could not resist them and persuaded Master to sell him the whole pot. This was how Master’s idea to earn a nice income was born. And because he was greedy and lazy, his wife cooked noodles at night and the Master ate them during the day before he could sell them. Once, a powerful gust of wind took Master’s wife away. There was a pot of noodles left and the message that it would always be full if there was at least one noodle left on the bottom. However, the Master cannot overcome his appetite….
