Eryk grows up without a father in a village in the Polish countryside. Aged 15, attracted to his young neighbour, he does not know the limit between love and abuse. For her first film, Pel turns to fictional documentary to address the sensitive issue of sexual abuse. A bold film half-way between retribution and forgiveness.
