Synopsis: Halina (Katarzyna Kwiatkowska) works in a supermarket chain while single-handedly raising a teen daughter, Misia. When she is offered a job promotion, she accepts, looking forward to an improved standard of living. Her managerial position does not come free, however, as Halina finds herself forced to victimize her former colleagues and friends, and her new work duties distract her from issues at home. When a grave judgement error during an overnight store inventory leads to a tragedy that costs her everything she worked for, starting with her job, Halina’s eyes start to open. Can she help to fix the various problems that she contributed to? Sadowska’s film was nominated for the “Golden Lion” Award at Gdynia Film Festival in 2012.
