Tickets and Venue


Every town has its secrets. Michał Król—an entrepreneur who becomes the mayor—is painfully convinced of this. Corrupt officials, financial fraud and media manipulation become his everyday life. He must fend off the attacks of those who have gotten under his skin. At some point, he begins to fear for his life and that of his family. Despite the difficulties he faces, he does not give up, remains faithful to his ideals and works for the good of the local community. However, he will have to pay a high price for this.

There will be a Q&A session with film producers Olga Bieniek and Marlena Kreńska following the screening.
