Synopsis: When Emilia (Aleksandra Hamałko) meets Maciek (Antoni Pawlicki), she is sixteen and he is twenty three. Their age difference, however, does not prevent them from falling in love; against her mother’s wishes, Emilia decides to move in with Maciek, and through him gains access to a world previously unknown to her, and all the more fascinating for it. Big Love is a story of their love: initially young and wild, and tested with time by Emilia’s changing understanding of herself.
