I cannot understand why the ratings for this film are so low (5.8 at the time of writing this review). It is probably not a masterpiece of realization (cinematography, sound), but it is a poignant story about the recovery of one's own identity by an adult, a clear voice in defense of women's right to independence from conservative norms and a portrait of the world of elderly people, too often pushed into the role of helpless old people. Above all, it is a touching and moving meeting with Jola, with her friends, and such an even sporting cheer for her chance of a new relationship with a partner who is the first in her life to respect the human being and not just use her gender to achieve head of family status. After the film, my wife and I talked for an hour about this story. I recommend that you watch it and meet Jola too.

For decades, Jola did what was expected of her. As a mother of six and the wife of an abusive husband, she would put on her make-up and colourful clothes to pretend everything was fine. One day something breaks inside her and she finds the strength to leave her husband and start living life to the fullest. She hangs out with her girlfriends, dances in Café Smile, writes poems and songs. She sings about love - something she's always dreamt of, yet never experienced. Unexpectedly, she meets Wojtek, who treats her like a queen. Will she be able to open up and embrace love for the first time? Especially, when she finds out that she has less time than she thought?
