Manu returns to her childhood home for a few days for her mother’s birthday. But that place now seems haunted by ghosts of the past wherever she goes. While a wave of memories floods her, Manu must deal with her difficult sister who is haunted by her own demons and whose psychological instability affected all family relationships. As time passes, nobody can predict the unexpected direction which the family celebration will take. The film premiered at this year’s Warsaw Film Festival.
