Piotr Domalewski’s second feature film, I Never Cry (Jak najdalej stąd), revolves around 17-year-old Ola, who has to go to Ireland to bring back the body of her father, after he died on a construction site. But Ola also has another objective in mind – she plans to retrieve the money that her dad had promised her so that she could buy a car.
