Synopsis: Having immigrated to Chicago with his family as a young boy, Marek (Marek Birner) has lived in the United States for most of his life, but he does not feel entirely at home there. Drawn to Europe, he decides to study at a university in Paris, where he embraces an indulgent and free-spirited lifestyle. When he loses his place at the university, he remains in Europe to pursue art by way of self-discovery. Will he find a stable identity for himself, or will he continue to feel pulled in opposite directions by cultures, women, and fate? Filmed on location in Europe and North American, Sokalski’s feature film debut tells a very relatable story in a visually accomplished way.
