POLISH TITLE: AMNEZJA
Piotr, who lived in Poland for 22 years, only after 20 years abroad learnt that 300 metres away from his family home 42 people had been murdered in the Kielce pogrom on 4 July 1946. A phone conversation with his mother reveals this unknown fact from the family history. In order to fully explain the matter, Piotr comes to Poland, to his parents’ house. Nothing will remain unambiguous in the maze of facts, interpretations of events and emotions.
