    • Synopsis
    • Halszka, who comes from a well-to-do family, is getting ready for her wedding. Four of her friends are organizing a Hen Party for her: Oliwia a journalist; her sister Alina, who happens to be an anti-globalist and a rebel; Anka an extreme sports enthusiast; and Veronica a thirty-year-old virgin.
      When girls come to pick Halszka up for the party they find out that she has just met another guy and has second thoughts about the upcoming wedding. Her friends panic, but soon they come up with a plan. They want to expose and spoil other guys in her eyes, so that in comparison, her groom will be a perfect man and no other guy is good enough for her.
      First they take her to a restaurant where they plan to observe couples and expose the real nature of guys, who want quick sex only - with no strings attached. For the same reason they go to a hockey match practice, where Halszka and the other girls see, stripped of any kind of romantic charm, animal-like masculinity. Then there is a cops party where, supposedly, the most honest guys in town, , are very single minded in their approach to women.
      Finally they end-up in a club with male striptease. Surprisingly, the main star turns out to be the guy that caused Halszka’s hesitation and because of whom the wedding might have to be called off. Halszka is shocked by her secret lover’s profession, but it doesn’t change anything between them. Unexpectedly, the other girls are also under his spell, and it seems that the whole idea of spoiling other guys for Halszka will become a flop. But that night the strip dancer shows his true colors. He turns out to be a typical skirt-chaser, who did not take Halszka seriously. He even encouraged her to marry her fiancé. For him it would be a perfect situation, being able to meet with a married woman, and have no responsibilities. He could carry on being footloose and enjoying his carefree life. What’s more, the stripper’s mind is set on seducing Halszka’s friend Veronica the virgin. Halszka sees it but her dilemma doesn’t seem to disappear because if she wavered for a while before the wedding her doubts might return after she’ll already have been married.
      Parallel to that, Halszka’s best friend Oliwia tries to conceal an affair. The Prime Minister himself seems to be the journalist’s admirer. Her interview with the PM is watched by millions of viewers. Oliwia rejects his advances after the first night spent together suspecting him of not taking her seriously. Now the primer wants to regain her trust and the millions of viewers become the unintended witnesses of their love affair. She has a huge dilemma, she rejects his love, afraid that she will be hurt. Used to dominating her partners she is now faced with the opposite in this case. Each hour brings her to a realization though, that maybe the premier is, in fact, the love of her life.
      Each of the friends finds love during that crazy night out and changes their attitude to life.
