Mary, just about to turn 50, works in a supermarket and her life isn't all that exciting. Then, one day, plagued by the annoying symptoms of her menopause, she overdoses on the hormon patches her doctor prescribed to her and when her vibrant and free-spirited niece Helena decides to crash at her house, Mary’s senses and imagination suddenly come alive. Now the two women are forced to redefine their relationship - in order to break free once and for all. The film is a quirky, darkly comic tale starring a stunning screen newcomer Grażyna Misiorowska. Story of a woman reclaiming her own body — as well as a moving tale of fantasy and reality clashing in a world that ignores the power of women.
