NINA GETS MARRIED
DIRECTED AND WRITTEN BY ANDRZEJ SZYPULSKI | LENGTH 52'/75' | LANGUAGE POLISH | STATUS DEVELOPMENT | YEAR 2022

Nina lives in a small town and has been a widow for a couple of years. Her worldview and moral principles are shaped by her religion – she is a Jehovah’s Witness. She was always a perfect mother and a housewife. She took care of others while sometimes forgetting about herself. One day she meets Krzysztof, a 15 years younger Catholic from a big city. Although they come from the totally opposite backgrounds and even more importantly, they believe in completely opposed "truths", they got married. For Nina this marriage becomes some kind of a mission. She wants to convert Krzysztof so he could be saved and so they could live together in paradise, live through the Armageddon... Krzysztof would like to see Nina out of the church. Will their love endure all those adversities? Nina’s story is told from the perspective of her son, director of the film. Thanks to the intimate atmosphere of the filming, he gets to know his mother better. This is going to be a tender tale about Nina and her love. About mother, grandmother, loving woman and woman of faith. About staying between the love for Jehova and love for a man. Will Nina decide which world is more important for her or maybe she can happily be part of both of them?
