Language: Polish

Subtitles: Czech, English

A carefully crafted film that documents the differences in opinion dividing a Polish family and the personal effects of radical social changes under the influence of today's strongly right-wing Polish government.

After a long time living in Munich, young Ola returns to Warsaw to celebrate her grandparents' 50th wedding anniversary with her family. In addition to a harmonious home and general well-being, however, she finds her relatives having developed in a different direction then hers – often polarised – views on topics that resonate across Central Europe. The camera sensitively listens in on snippets of conversations, meetings between doors, and the memories of older generations. It records the sometimes fiercely heated emotions of interpersonal relationships, but never mocks its protagonists. Thanks to their openness, the film – one of the first of its kind among festival films – documents the changes that have been driving Polish society over the past few years.
