The Nest

The Nest

It’s 1968. Jacob, a student in Czechoslovakia, pays an unannounced visit to his family in Poland. The seemingly idyllic atmosphere of seeing each other after a long time is gradually disturbed by the real reason for Jacob’s visit. Torn by doubt after hearing rumours about his father, the boy tries to find out the truth.
