Written by Julia Kowalski, the story sees a Polish labourer called Jozef arrive in Brittany in search of his son, Roman, who he walked out on 15 years ago.

The shoot will take place from 24 November to 9 January in Saint-Brieuc and Poland, and distribution in France will be handled by Epicentre Films.
