An attractive and mysterious Ukrainian immigrant makes a living giving home massages in an affluent residential neighborhood on the outskirts of Warsaw. In his hands, however, is hidden a unique gift, a healing power that penetrates the lonely souls of his clients and makes him an object of desire. Małgorzata Szumowska and Michał Englert sign a provocative satire with touches of surreal delirium.
