After decades married to a "worthless fleabag" husband, and raising six kids, Jola has finally decided to let loose. Although, the immaculately garbed, primped and coiffed sexagenarian would never allow her appearance to slide! She leaves her abusive partner in Italy and heads to her native Poland, where she lounges on the beach with her girlfriends, takes singing lessons and writes poems. Then, Jola meets Wojtek at a Latin dance class and her head is turned. He's a gallant and considerate man, but Jola is hesitant to commit; "Should I try one more time, or are all men the same?" she muses.
Filmmakers Goliszewska and Mateja have crafted a wonderfully cinematic and joyful account of a woman's battle to reinvent herself in her twilight years.
