Polish Prayers

It is the women, the tender, difficult, exciting relationships with them, through which Antek learns to really be a man. The film follows him from when he has all the answers to the many questions any young man needs to answer for himself, and his family.

Antek practically lives a double life, praying the rosary with a megaphone in the marketplace of Wroclaw during the day to "save Christians from persecution and Europe from Islamisation" and getting drunk with young women at techno parties at night.

Not everything is as it should be at home either. Antek's mother has left his father and taken his little brothers and sisters with her, and Antek is torn in his loyalty between his father, who is his role model, and his mother, who supports him but challenges traditional values with her emancipation.
