December, 1981. Marianna, a devout Catholic, decides to use a family celebration – the christening of her youngest grandchild, to reconcile her children who have been at odds for years. Unexpectedly, she is thwarted by General Jaruzelski, who declares martial law in Poland on that day. In order to complete the family reconciliation, Marianna decides to hide the truth about the situation in the country from her children. This seemingly small lie sets in motion an avalanche of unexpected events that will be hard to stop.
After screening, we intvite you for an Q&A with Katarzyna Figura.
