    Drama

    Eryk lives with his mother and grandmother in a Polish village. He’s a big, handsome boy, likeable and naïve. His mother Ewa barely seems his elder; the share an alarming codependency underscored by jealousy and proprietary feelings. Yet Eryk is secretly trysting with his neighbour Klaudia, whom he treats with both tenderness and brutality, as though he doesn’t know the difference.
