Film description

Małgorzata, an important politician, travels to a lake house to help her drug-addicted son and asks her daughter for support; the two discover the semi-conscious boy and mutilated body of a young girl. The tragedy tests their relationship as unhealed emotional wounds break open. Can moral rules be broken when it comes to our children? How much can you rationalize through blind maternal love? A woman faces the toughest choice of her life.
