Karolina and Natalia seek refuge from their domineering father and reminiscence about sad childhood without a mother in a basement of their block of flats. When the younger sister’s poor eyesight starts to deteriorate, the girls decide to find Bożena, their mother, who left the family when they were young. The director, Jakub Stożek, accompanies Karolina on her journey to Paris where the older sister is supposed to meet the mother whom the girls know only from the voice message left on the phone she never answers.

The beginning of this summer will be marked by a great sport event in Poland's history - the 2012 European Footbal Championship. While footballers are getting ready for the games, rumors are spreading about fraudulent transactions as new stadiums are being built, foreign players are being hired instead of poor Polish footballers and most Polish fans are truly convinced their team is not capable to win a match. Although some feel excitement and other sense disappointment, Marcin Koszalka's film attempts to look at the guts of Polish nature, interwoven with paradoxes, contrasts and contradictions. Having the best cameramen ready to record the art of football right there on the pitch, the director employs the whole frenzy to reflect on the proud nation.
This is the story of three cases dealing with Poland’s most famous serial killers, slaughtering with explicit sexual motivation. Joachim Knychała committed 5 murders, he has been dead for some time now, but there is a very dramatic diary of his, depicting his own point of view about the crimes. Besides that there is also a recording of a 6-hours-long interrogation that helps to disclose his motives, adding to the fact that unusual measures had to be taken to solve the case. Another killer, nicknamed Red Spider, has been living in Kobierzyn’s special psychic penitentiary for 46 years. The camera follows him living his detached life, immersed in artistic ambitions. The third convict is a brutal four-time murderer who left prison two years ago and now, though 60 years-old, lives an easy life in Ostróda with his old parents. In the end, it is necessary to pose a crucial question: what lies behind fascination with mass murderers?
