Synopsis: A powerful, albeit dark drama about the relationship between two people: a Masurian peasant Róża (Agata Kulesza) and a former AK soldier Tadeusz (Marcin Dorociński). Although under different circumstances, both of their lives have been indelibly touched by the historical cataclysm of the Second World War. Can the feelings that slowly begin to develop between them transcend the differences in their backgrounds and experiences, and survive the harsh, post-war realities of life in Masuria? Smarzowski’s film has been nominated and won numerous awards, including “Orły” for “Best Film”, “Best Screenplay”, “Best Actress”, “Best Supporting Actor”, and “Best Sound” at the 2012 Polish National Film Awards.
