After their mother’s death, 35-year-old Aga starts to look after her teenage brother, Milosz. She starts playing the role of both mother and father to him, but there is one thing she isn’t telling him about. It’s her long-term relationship with Maja. Will the three of them manage to build a new model of a family in the midst of a conservative and closed community? How will the xenophobic mindset that Milosz is surrounded by, affect the relationships within his home?
