FATHER'S DAY

POLISH TITLE: OJCZE MASZ

REPRESENTED BY KFF

Marcel is approaching forty, but he still hasn’t settled down. Like a free electron, he lives from party to party, avoiding responsibilities and making the most of life’s attractions. Until the moment when a casual fling  that he’s got caught up in forces him to become involved with a ten-year-old boy, Józek. Marcel does what he can to rid himself of the unruly child, but to no avail. All his schemes come to nothing and, as if that weren’t enough, in the middle of the night, Józek vanishes.
