Inspired by the story of American aviator Amelia Earhart, the film is a poetic reflection on flight. Flying not only as a mechanical event where a mass of metal floats in the air, but also in a more profound sense, as an abandonment of earth, a symbol of reality, adults and rules. It is a tale about freedom.

The film tells a story of a bear and a series of events that took place in the Polish countryside. The main character tries to explain to the forest ranger how he met this dangerous animal. But instead he describes more and less important events that happened on the very same day as he was going back home from a wedding.
An anthropomorphic figure with the head of an elephant stands in front of a mirror in a bathroom. As we sink deeper and deeper into layers of the strange organism that resembles a nervous system and a plant at the same time, the elephant-head character seems to react in a violent and unpredictable way, creating a kind of a choreography which ends in the vanishing of the character himself.
Unwanted Desires is a personal notebook, compilations of scenes which present unacceptable behaviour. Such behaviour is sometimes just strange, disgusting, sometimes dangerous – but there still is a need to 'do it', because it's against social expectations.
An extraordinary mockumentary discovering the incredible life cycle of Peteramosaurus Cavator in the wonderful landscape of the Alps.
