Synopsis

Behind the fences of a gated community, a singular game is being played out. The residents’ lives are regulated by an inexorable, patriarchal code. For years, the Nowak and Kowalski families have been embroiled in a vendetta governed by the cyclical law of blood and honour. When the Nowaks’ son dies at the hand of Klara Kowalska, his nineteen-year-old sister is chosen by their father to revenge his death. Pressured by her family and the community of residents, she starts to hunt Klara. When the confrontation occurs, Ewa is faced with a choice between carrying out revenge in the name of honour on the one hand and her own life and freedom on the other.
