PRESENTED IN PARTNERSHIP WITH THE EMBASSY OF THE REPUBLIC OF POLAND
In the 1920s, the remote borderland between Poland and the Soviet Union is a lawless no man’s land ruled by gangs and bandits. In many ways it’s like the Old West – which makes it the perfect setting for this daring, feminist Western from Poland inspired by the films of Quentin Tarantino and Sergio Leone.
Following the death of the head of the powerful Levenfish criminal clan, strong-willed Rose (Maja Ostaszewska) and her sisters make the unprecedented move of stepping up to take control of their late father’s shady businesses. But they better watch their backs, because a group of sly Soviet racketeers have their eyes on the empire too. Meanwhile, inseparable brothers Albin (Mateusz Kościukiewicz) and Albert (Dawid Ogrodnik) are about to execute a daring plan to dramatically improve their standard of living: they will pose as photographers (using the titular chemical) and make off with the Levenfish family fortune.
