A moving tale of compassion, sexual longing, childhood trauma, and religious commitment. Father Adam (Polish star Andrzej Chyra), an attractive, energetic priest, seems more comfortable in a T-shirt, kicking a soccer ball around with his young charges than preaching a sermon. Living in a halfway house type situation, away from the temptations that helped get them there in the first place, the residents of this societal limbo-land are put off-balance when a new punk enters the picture and starts spreading rumors about the priest’s sexuality. The boys’ casual, yet pervasive homophobia and anti-Semitism add to a complicated picture of modern Poland very much in the thrall of historical prejudice.
