Adapted from a novel by Jakub Małecki Feast of Fire is a heartwarming film about happiness, ambition and secrets. Two devoted sisters struggle with very different constraints imposed by their bodies. Nastka, who has cerebral palsy and communicates non verbally, starts to expand both her experience and her potential for joy when a neighbour (award winning Kinga Preis) becomes involved in their lives. Meanwhile Łucja, a leading ballerina, considers a future without performing. Balancing laugh-out-loud comedy with deep seated emotional trauma this is a film that asks us to put ourselves in someone else’s shoes and encourages us to become better advocates for our desires.
