Kuba, a professional swimmer, splits his time between practice and his beautiful partner. However, his daily routine is rudely interrupted when an attractive young man invades his life and awakens uncontrollable sexual desires. The first Polish gay film belongs to Wasilewski’s brave directorial voice and his decision to defy his country’s cinematic taboos in order to tell a courageous love story.
