Dir. Piotr Adamski | 2019, 78min
With Maja Pankiewicz, Paulina Krzyzanska, Marcin Czarnik

New York Premiere! Piotr Adamski’s feature debut offers a shocking alternative reality of Poland, where blood revenge is legal and rival clans live in a world of luxury and violent retribution. In this dystopian society regulated by an inexorable, patriarchal code, the Nowak and Kowalski families have been entangled in a vendetta for years. When the Nowaks’ son dies at the hand of a Kowalska, his sister must choose between carrying out revenge in the name of honour or fighting for her own life and freedom.

Presented in partnership with the Polish Cultural Institute New York and co-programmed by Tomek Smolarski
