Skateboarding brothers' search for meaning in a stylish black-and-white hipster look. After the death of their mother, Bartek and Filip's lives slowly slip away. Intimate and rough odyssey of emotions through the turmoil of growing up.

FSK 12

Filip is seventeen, but still the dreamy skater kid from back then. His older brother Bartek wants to move away to finally live alone. Their last summer together. Things haven't been so easy since their mother died. The two are still trying to come to terms with it. Bartek is a hothead, drinks and smokes pot. Filip is shy and sensitive. Add to that their depressed father and the drugs. And a girl who turns both their heads. In highly aesthetic black-and-white images, Marcin Filipowicz succeeds in creating a sensitive and at the same time tough portrait of two opposing brothers, which tells of the last enchanted days before everything will change. A search for identity and one's place in the world, in which Hubert Milkowski, Poland's equivalent of Timothée Chalamet, shines as Filip.
