Wannabe rapper Kamil dreams of recording his first hip-hop album, but even his social media addict girlfriend Anecia has no faith in his efforts. Trophy wife Iwona has everything that she ever dreamed of, but is too bored with her luxury games. Kamil, pushing drugs and living with his mother and sister, meets Iwona for afternoon quickies without a single drop of love…
An adaptation of a book by Dorota Masłowska, the enfant terrible of Polish literature, this is a grotesque, dark, Warsaw-based, epic ‘hip-hopera’ with razor-sharp editing that energetically mixes social drama with expressive freestyle rapping. A panoramic portrait of Polish life, showcasing the storytelling possibilities of the rap form.
