Having made a name for herself with award-winning entries in renowned film festivals, Anna Kazejak returns with a harshly intimate family drama set against an idyllic seaside campsite. With a lot of humour, funny situations, and surprising twists, audiences and juries worldwide have appreciated the film.

Four characters will grapple with the ever-evolving nature of their roles and responsibilities during a long weekend trip as traditional norms clash against modern ideas. Maja and Hubert are the archetypal fortysomething Polish couple, complete with two pre-teen boys and all the typical tension expected in a family drama. They are joined by an old friend, recently divorced Dawid, who has brought along his young son Kaj, and his very young girlfriend, college-aged Nina. To complete this recipe for disaster, the first night ends with the four adults scrambling to piece together how to deal with serious life situations. The ensuing arguments shed light on ideological divides and throw into question long-held beliefs.
