Two worlds of colliding values.

 

 

Angelo and Kasia met in Italy in the Focolare Movement where their love and faith in God brought them together. Their relationship is broken by the girl’s return to Poland and her decision on entering the convent. Angelo arrives in Warsaw in order to persuade Kasia to change her mind. He takes up a job in an international corporation while waiting for her decision. The company is managed by ruthless and cynical Kris with the support of her assistant Mira. In this corporate reality Angelo, a believer, falls victim to the ridicule and harassment. Kris, using her power, plays with Angelo and wants to force him to break moral principles and yet at the same time she is fascinated by his faith.
