Based on the true story of a priest philosopher who finds out he is not who he thinks he is. In search of his true identity, he begins to acutely feel how different and other he is in a world that seems to increasingly require a distinct definition of one’s ancestry, ethnicity and faith. His attempts to reconcile his uniqueness send him on a fast-paced and humorous journey of unexpected adventures, despite the underlying tragedy of his discovery.
With Łukasz Lewandowski as Jacob; Małgorzata Rożniatowska, Izabela Dąbrowska, Magdalena Smalara and Zbigniew Dziduch as a typical Polish family; Magdalena Czerwińska, Marta Król, Marcin Sztabiński and Otar Saralidze as a Jewish family.
Ondrej Spišák directs, continuing his more than fifteen year collaboration with Tadeusz Słobodzianek. Their joint productions, including “Nasza klasa” (Our Class), “Malambo”, “Merlin. Inna historia” (Merlin. A Different Story), “Prorok Ilja” (The Prophet Ilya), “Młody Stalin” (Young Stalin) and “Niedźwiedź Wojtek” (Voytek the Bear) have won numerous awards and enjoy the recognition of audiences both in Poland and abroad.
