The story of Jagna, a young woman determined to forge her own path within the confines of a late 19th century Polish village held together, rich and poor, by pride in their land, adherence to colorful traditions and deep-rooted patriarchy. When Jagna finds herself caught between the conflicting desires of the village’s richest farmer, his eldest son, and other leading men of the community, her resistance puts her on a tragic collision course with the community around her. Observer (UK) calls the film, "a disconcertingly beautiful picture about the ugliness of humanity."
