 revolves around a young girl who lives in a small town in Poland. She is kidnapped and taken to a brothel in Germany, but luckily she manages to escape and return home. However, the welcome she receives is far from warm, as the girl is ostracised by the local, conservative community.

The script was written by Katarzyna Terechowicz and Magdalena Łazarkiewicz, who also directed the film. The small cast of this Argomedia production includes Agnieszka Warchulska, Katarzyna Herman (from Tomasz Wasilewski’s Floating Skyscrapers [+see also:
