Synopsis by Rovi
Award-winning Polish director and co-writer Malgorzata Szumowska’s tragicomic film scrutinizes the materialism, religiosity, and hypocrisy of her present-day homeland. Jacek (Mateusz Kosciukiewicz) experiences a terrible work injury when working on the construction of the world’s largest Christ statue, which necessitates the country’s first face transplant. He returns to his village as a social outcast, forced to view his surroundings through a new lens.
