Final day of school in a small Polish town. It's the very last chance for a 12 year old Gabrysia to tell her classmate that she had fallen in love with him. She sets up a secret meeting and blackmails the boy to show up. But what was supposed to be an intimate talk spins out of control and leads to an unexpected ending. Written by Latido Films

User Reviews

The most brutal, sicking movie ever made!
14 May 2021 | by ntj-filmSee all my reviews

As a connoisseur of all things sick and twisted, I feel confident in proclaiming this film the most vile and horrifying I've ever seen. It's also absolutely brilliant, which makes it all the more devastating.

You really need to do a little research before you jump in, because this isn't A Serbian Film or Human Centipede II exploitation, it's social realism, heart of Darkness type stuff and it kicks like a steroid injected mule.

I've never felt as empty or lost watching a film as I did watching this one.

You have been warned.
