A young Polish artist is invited for a residency in Rotterdam. She takes the train to get there. Throughout her way, she receives phone calls from her mother, who is troubled by her daughter’s lonesome journey to the Netherlands, as to her it represents all the dangers lurking at a young woman. Goliszewska’s film in a humorous but also genuine way depicts a mother-daughter relationship, and further reflects on the mechanisms of fear creation and the feeling of perpetual threat. (Michał Matuszewski)
