Category: ???

A young Polish gay man and his grandmother love each other, but do not understand each other. An intimate dialogue about freedom of choice and fulfilment of traditional duties.

Grandma loves her grandson very much, and for this reason she patiently waits for God to rid him of his homosexuality. He understands that it does not make sense to blame her and quarrel endlessly, and so he responds to her expressions of dissatisfaction with silence and nervous laughter. The film captures the clash of old Catholic Poland with a new generation ready to fully adopt modern values. But it also casts a personal look at specific characters who breathe for themselves and who, despite their opposing feelings, try to find a way to live together. For these suggestive self-portraits Rafał Łysak has chosen a raw approach, using a handheld digital camera that does not invade the characters' personal space in order to achieve a very intense experience that captures all the present emotions.
