This story is apparently a retelling of Dostoyevsky--"A Gentle Creature" (or "A Gentle Spirit"). However, it's VERY, VERY hard to gather that this is the case, as the film is very sketchy and so much of the story is NOT apparent in this animated story. Now this does NOT mean the film is bad--it just ISN'T really the full Dostoyevsky story--just some sketchy bits from it. So, while the story is VERY sketchy and confusing, it is worth seeing for Piotr Dumala's very impressive and unusual animation. Instead of a typical cartoon look, he has created what looks like a piece of art--a cross-hatched look that most closely resembles a drypoint print. It's very arresting and you simply see the film for this, not for the story. Worth a look.
