DESCRIPTION

Christmas Eve. A rural house in Eastern Poland. Adam, a young economic migrant, turns up unannounced for the traditional festive supper. None of his large family suspects the true reason behind his unexpected return home. The atmosphere of the film oscillates between tragedy and absurd humour.
