When adults are ineffectual, children have to grow up quickly. Ola is 14 and she takes care of her father, autistic brother and a mother who lives apart from them; but most of all she tries to reunite the family. She lives in the hope of bringing her mother back home. Her 13-year-old brother Nikodem’s Holy Communion is a pretext for the family to meet up. Ola is entirely responsible for preparing the perfect family celebration. Communion reveals the beauty of the rejected, the strength of the weak and the need for change when change seems impossible. This crash course in growing up teaches us that no failure is final. Especially when love is in question.
Communion, the documentary debut feature film directed by Anna Zamecka, produced in 2017 by HBO Poland, Otter Films, and Wajda Studio, has been shortlisted for the European Academy Awards 2017 Documentary Selection.
