Piotr Adamski in his film debut named Eastern creates a shocking vision of Poland. Weapon is legal, blood revenge is a legal claim and the „eye for an eye“ rule persists between the rival families. In this alternative, dystopical non/ reality, behind the gates of the closed world of luxury, under a close supervision, a strange game of violence is taking place. Two girls get in the middle of unsettled accounts between neigbours and decide to change the rules. Fear, ubiquitous suspicion and the obligation to obey the cruel tradition create an unbearable atmosphere. Surprisingly, it begins to show that not all of the members of the clan feel good in such a world. Will the two girls succeed in resisting the family system? The film addresses the audience mainly thanks to its visual rendering. Long, static shots underline the rawness of the story.
