Table, that also tells lies / Miza, ki tudi laže – Film

There is a farm somewhere in Koroška region. This farm treasures something precious – a table that can lift itself up and answer questions. The table has been in the family for more than centuries, and nobody knows who manufactured. The table needs quite some energy to be set into motion; therefore Grandma Marija and granddaughter Simona place their hands on it. The table won’t answers any questions about death. It freely admits to occasionally telling lies. What is more, if asked whether it is all-knowing, it raises itself particularly high. Miroslav Mandić embarks on a journey because he wants to see this wonder with his own eyes.

Nekje na Koroškem stoji kmetija, ki poseduje prav posebno dragocenost – mizo, ki se dviguje in odgovarja na vprašanja. Miza je v lasti družine že okrog 300 let in nihče ne ve več, kdo jo je izdelal. Za zagon potrebuje kar nekaj energije, zato pri polaganju rok na pomoč priskočita babica Marija ali pa vnukinja Simona. Miza na vprašanja o smrti ne odgovarja. Prostodušno prizna, da včasih tudi laže, še prav posebej visoko pa se dvigne, če jo vprašaš, ali vse ve. Miroslav Mandić se odpravi na pot, saj si želi videti mizo na lastne oči.
