Kuba attends an art opening with his girlfriend of two years and bumps into Michal. The connection between these two young men is instantaneous and intoxicating, and despite opposition from all sides, he allows Michal into his life. The results go beyond anything he could have imagined. This intimate and bold second feature from Polish director Tomasz Wasilewski captures the often-complicated consequences of finding love where others do not want it.
