Killing Auntie

“There was no doubt Auntie was a corpse. She lay still, a small trickle of blood pouring out of God knows where as there was no visible wound.” Jurek is 23 years old, a history student. He lives with his loving auntie, who raised and supports him. Feeling that she is a cause and a symbol of his existential malaise, he reaches for the hammer... But will life without his aunt be brighter? A movie about fighting your own demons, based on an unfinished novel by Andrzej Bursa from 1957.
