Director
Marcin Koszalka

Director tells about his family, far from ideal, and again speaks of death. This film is a history of Marcin Koszalka’s elder sister and her difficult relationships with parents. Even after their death the woman who appreciates joy and beauty of life above all is torturing with bitter, profound remorse. Film characters are also patients of palliative care department – incurable people and doctor taking care of them. In this film Marcin Koszalka brought together two worlds: people who deliberately prepare to die, and his sister who created the cult of life and does not recognize death.
