Description

Mendel spends his whole life dreaming his days away in the little village of Chelm, until one day he decides to set off for Warsaw. Along the way he stops for a nap, pointing his shoes in the direction of Warsaw so he won't lose his way, but a passerby turns the shoes backwards, sending him back to Chelm. Once there Mendel is amazed to find that Warsaw is just like home, and he decides, from then on, to just stay put.
