Simple Things, Grzegorz Zariczny’s sophomore film, breaks genre conventions by introducing a fictional character into a documentary story. Director observes the authentic relationship between Błażej, Magda, and their daughter, Ala. To fulfil their dream a young family moves outside the city and renovates the country house by themselves. An unexpected offer of help coming from an uncle (Tomasz Schimscheiner), the brother of Błażej’s recently deceased father, will make the lead character to confront the painful past.
