    • Synopsis
    • Made in Poland – two days from the life of a hatred-fueled boy from a run-down district of the town, Boguś (Piotr Wawer). He leaves his post as an altar boy and rushes off through the residential development with “fuck off” tattooed on his forehead, inciting people to rebel. It seems, however, that no-one is interested in the revolution and demolishing phone booths and cars does not bring him relief, but gets him in trouble. On his path he is confronted with his old mentors – a priest, who was commanded to come to the housing estate by a vision of Jesus Christ himself (Przemysław Bluszcz) his fellow rebel Zenek (Eryk Lubos); a former Polish teacher, alcoholic, communist and a lover of Władysław Broniewski’s poetry (Janusz Chabior) and his loving, ex-hippie mother who thrives on her love of Krzysztof Krawczyk (Magdalena Kuta). In the next hours Boguś will experience more than in his entire life. He will have to face local gangsters (Wiesław Cichy, Michał Majnicz, Dariusz Maj), he will gain a friend and a follower – a night watchman, strapped to a wheelchair, called Emil (Grzegorz Sowa) and will fall in love in his sister, Monika (Marta Powałowska). He will also understand, who he really is and gain faith in the meaning of his rebellion, in which he will gain an unlikely ally…
      Made in Poland is also an attempt at creating an essay about the Polish schizophrenic mentality, mixing romanticism, messianic beliefs, Catholicism, left-winged ideals, a love of rebellion, complexes and a sense of danger. It is an attempt at telling the story of people who are completely lost and strive to find meaning in the modern world and their own lives.
