    Poland
    On her eighteenth birthday, Lena is trying to bond with her family, but as usual, they seem to be ignoring her. It also happens to be All Soul's Day, a time for contacting the dead and getting together to return to one's roots. Lena set out in search for her long-lost father. Events of the day transpire that ultimately lead her to reassess what family truly means. Written and directed by Aleksandra Terpinska.

Her best friend proposes a radical solution: to give Lili a radical makeover from head to toe. Lili agrees to be transformed. Little does she know that this makeover will fundamentally change not only her day, but also her life. When your inhibitions are the last things you have to lose, that's when freedom begins.
