The world is a mysterious place when seen through the eyes of EO, an adorable donkey with melancholy eyes. He meets a variety of people on his life’s path, serving as a circus animal and mascot before landing in a donkey sanctuary. Like the rest of us, EO experiences joy and pain and endures the wheel of fortune’s random spins. Unlike the rest of us, he constantly maintains his humility and dignity.

Polish master Jerzy Skolimowski pays homage to Robert Bresson’s 1966 classic AU HASARD BALTHAZAR with this beautifully filmed, surreal story of one animal’s odyssey through modern-day Poland.
