Alicja has no memory and no knowledge about how she lost it. In two years, she manages to build a new, independent self, away from home. She doesn’t want to remember the past. So, when her family finds her, she is forced to fit into the roles of a mother, daughter and wife, surrounded by what seem to be complete strangers. What remains once you forget you loved someone? Is it necessary to remember the emotion of love in order to feel happiness?

Agnieszka Smoczyńska graduated the University of Silesia. She participated in master classes at Wajda Film School. In 2015 she debuted with her feature film The Lure which experiments with genres of musical and horror. She received the Special Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival.
