Description:

The end of 1970s. A summer in a small town. 12-year-old Peter is very close to his mother. With his father being absent, his mother begins to disappear in the evenings. Their clear and simple mother-son relationship starts to get complicated. The boy, entangled in the grown-ups’ affairs, feels more and more lost and lonely. The holiday world of the children of his age brings him his first fascinations and disappointments. On his father’s return, he has to confront himself with an inconvenient truth. Will he side with his mother? Or will he prove loyal to his father? How will this hard and painful experience influence his relations with his mother? Film co-financed by the Lodz Film Fund in 2016.
