RYSZARD KACZYŃSKI studied law and journalism at Warsaw University. He also followed a post graduate studies atthe Institute of International Studies in Geneva, where he worked for 14 years as producer and journalist at Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in Montreal.

The arrival of an American couple at the children’s home in Przesieka in the summer of 1997 caused commotion. It was even greater when Rita and Robert Jurotich decided to adopt five siblings. Soon after their arrival to the US, however, it turned out that their idyllic dreams were crushed by brutal everyday life. The film records dramatic experiences of the children over the period of 15 years.
