Warsaw, November 2013. Marky collects Mum from a cottage on an allotment in the outskirts of Warsaw where she’s been sleeping. It’s too cold to stay there so they head for the city, taking with them Mum’s companion – a stray dog called Mate. They lost their flat in the city centre because of city hall’s brutal housing policies. Then Mum even loses her place in the homeless shelter because Mate isn’t allowed there. She chooses to remain homeless rather than lose her beloved pet.
