CommunionWhen adults are ineffective, children have to grow up quickly. Ola is 14 and takes care of her dysfunctional father, her autistic brother, and her mother, who lives away from home. Dreaming of reuniting the family, she masterminds her brother’s Communion.
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. Anna Zamecka`s debut film won European Film Award 2017 for Best Documentary.
