Is it possible for an 80-year-old, very devout woman and her gay grandson to begin to understand one another? Will they be able to overcome their convictions through love? The director, Rafal, tells us his own personal story. His grandma Teresa has raised him since he was a small child and has become like a mother to him. She sees family as the greatest value in life. Her husband has passed away many years ago, her daughter has moved away, her sister leads her own life and her entire love and attention has been focused on Rafal, her beloved grandson. And then there was the moment when he told her about his sexual orientation. And it broke her heart.
