The film centers on Magda and Arek, a married couple celebrating their 25th anniversary, their son Tomek and his girlfriend Asia, and their grandfather, who is struggling with dementia. Seemingly, everything is fine—typical family. Yet, Magda, a teacher in a Catholic high school, hides that she prefers women; Arek has not been able to find a job for a long time, and Tomek, a popular YouTuber, is driven mainly by self-interest. The film takes a turn when Magda, tired of living in hiding, decides to follow her heart, setting off an avalanche of events. Asia breaks up with Tomek, the grandfather disappears, and Arek has problems getting his life back on track. When crises, conflicts, and desires that have been suppressed for years finally explode, everyone begins to live their own life.

Seeking humorous answers to important questions about family relations, Czarna owca [Black Sheep] is a warm and moving comedy drama about bonds that are impossible to break.

The screening will take place on Saturday, November 25 at 18.00 in the Walk-in Cinema.
