This is a story of reform, a tale of changing courses of the destiny. Drug ruins life, wrecks family, destroys future but sheer will power and concrete determination can help to redeem one's life.

Jerzy Gorski (Jakub Gierszal) is an addict. He introduces drugs to his rebellious girlfriend, which eventually ruins her life. But when Jerzy was denied access to her daughter he starts to reconsider his life choices. He finds his passion in triathlon and uses that to return into normal life.

In one hand the story is very uplifting and on the other it is equally heartbreaking. The film also portraits the fact that not everyone is rescued from the evil grasp of addiction. Rehabilitation is a very arduous process which can derail within a split second. Jerzy's struggle was beautifully showed in the screen. And the performance of Jakub Gierszal was quite commendable.

This is a good film to watch. It reminds us to be more resilient and supportive towards the addicted persons so the can flip their life back to normal.

Recommended.
