Written and directed by Artur Urbanski, Bellissima follows aging femme fatale Elzbieta (Ewa Kasprzyk) in her efforts to push her daughter, Maria (Maria Goralczyk), into the media stoplight she believes she herself was denied. Maria, however, does not have the same desire, and goes as far as to walk out on the filming of a TV commercial which would have involved kissing the boy with whom Elzbieta is having an affair. Maria eventually runs away, even if it's only to the house of her next-door neighbors. Though she does become successful in the long run, a twist of fate leaves her taking care of her mother's most recent child.
