Pewnego razu w listopadzie...

Once Upon a Time in November

Marek is about to start his law studies at the University of Warsaw. He has a beautiful girlfriend Ola, and looks after his mother every day. They live in a pre-war tenement, but one day, the family gets evicted, which marks the beginning of a tedious wandering from one night shelter in Warsaw to another. Eventually, Marek manages to find a place to stay in a squat. But the city is preparing for a demonstration to celebrate the Independence Day. A group of hooligans is trying to storm into the building where they have found shelter. The events about to take place will leave ineffaceable marks on the lives of our protagonists. (To fest)
