Alicja suffers from dissociative fugue, a condition that has made her forget her identity.  After suffering an episode, she disappears. Two years later, she returns to her former family to assume against her will, her role as wife, mother and daughter.

Her family claims her after seeing her on a TV show about missing persons. Alicja learns that her real name is Kinga, and that she has a husband and a five-year old son.

Initially, she wants to abandon her new/old family as soon as possible, but she gradually becomes intrigued by the life she left behind and sticks around to discover it.

Belfast Film Festival films will not feature ads or trailers and will, therefore, start at the advertised time.
