Strong directorial debut, visual extravagance, told in rap rhythm. A modern polyphonic metropolitan story about human dreams, the longing for love, loneliness and despair suppressed by antidepressants. Nobody’s happy in this world. Kamil lives in the block with his mother and dreams of a career as a rapper. He has an affair with the bored, unhappy, wealthy married woman Iwona. The screenplay is based on Dorota Masłowska’s unique prose, and according to the director: “the most important, but the hardest, thing was to translate the poetry of the verses into the poetry of the images”.
