  • Description:

    A nuanced, critical depiction of everyday life amid communist bureaucracy, the film follows a woman struggling to raise her son with little support in a small town. As her already-bleak circumstances take several turns for the worse, she embarks on a desperate plan. Banned in Poland, this was the last film made by Holland in her homeland before seeking exile in France.
