How Much Does the Trojan Horse Weight?
The New Year’s Eve of 1999. Zosia is a happy wife and mother. Her second marriage with Jakub is a good one and her daughter from the first marriage adores her stepfather. But Zosia blames her fate for not meeting Jakub 13 years earlier. On the night of the New Year’s Eve dreams sometimes come true. Zosia wakes up… in May 1987. But going back in time has not only pleasant consequences. In a bed by her side sleeps her first husband, the daughter is not born yet and Poland is still under communism. How to make things end up well?
