If you go away

If you go away


Ewa Stankiewicz

2010, 1 h 55 min

Joanna is a journalist tired of competing and rushing for a career. She can’t recover from the death of her seriously ill mother. Joanna didn’t have the courage to enter an empty flat she left in the middle of a makeover so she spends the night in a youth hostel where soon she partly moves in. Getting more and more desperate, one evening she goes on town to look for a one night stand who will make her pregnant. Łukasz is a monk. For a few months, he has been replacing a friend in confessing terminally ill patients at a nearby hospital. Incapable of coping with pain, he goes through a faith crisis. Signs that he notices lead him to a woman he has never met – Joanna.
