The story of an outstanding Polish painter, Zdzisław Beksiński, and his complicated relationship with his son, Tomek, an extremely popular music journalist who suffered from depression and made numerous attempts to commit suicide. The film is a startling, sometimes shocking, sometimes moving family drama documentary which has been painstakingly reconstructed using audio recordings, film and photographs from the Beksińskis’ private archive, material that has never been made public in this form before. The screenplay is based on Magdalena Grzebałkowska’s best-selling biography ”The Beksińskis. A Double Portrait” (2014).
