Synopsis by Mark Deming
A woman looking for love is willing to go to unexpected lengths to find it in this comedy-drama. Molly (Mairead McKinley) is a woman from Ireland who has been having relationship problems, and one lonely night she has a one-night-stand with Marcin (Jan Wieczorkowski), a Polish tourist who tells her he works in a coal mine back home. Several months later, Molly begins to see Marcin as an opportunity that slipped through her fingers, so she catches a flight to Poland in order to find him. While Molly is able to find the small town where he lives, she discovers tracking down Marcin himself is more of a challenge, especially since most of the town's coal mines have been closed down for years and Molly can't speak a single word of Polish. Eventually, Molly and Marcin are reunited, but he's more than a bit surprised to see her and she wonders if he's really the man of her dreams in the cold light of the Polish day. Molly's Way was the first feature film from director Emily Atef.
