A young orphan Anna (Agata Trzebuchowska), raised in the convent, meets her aunt Wanda (Agata Kulesza), about whose existence she had no idea. She learns from her that she is a Jewess and that her parents died during the war. Together, they set out on a car journey to find their grave. This expedition will change the lives of both women. The Oscar-winning film by Paweł Pawlikowski is one of the greatest successes of the Polish cinema of recent years. By the poetic formula of the film, the director tells about the difficult fate of post-war Poland. Asking uncomfortable questions about the Holocaust, referring to the tradition of the Polish film school and telling the fate of the country through the prism of women, aroused numerous discussions.
