Normal married couple with one adorable child find fighting about everything the norm until one day they wake up in the other's body - oops - and get to see what it is to be married to themselves.

SIFF year-round passes and vouchers are not valid for this screening.

Kaśka and Krzysiek - a young, attractive married couple with a charming son and an apartment in a picturesque area. It seems that they should be happy, and yet they are on the verge of divorce. They spend every day the same - arguing. Until the morning when they must work together like never before. And all because of... switching bodies. From now on, Krzysiek is Kaśka, and Kaśka is Krzysiek. Each of them has to take over the other's responsibilities and face problems they didn't know existed before... Will it make them look at each other differently and learn empathy? Swapping bodies is just a keyhole used by the filmmakers to be able to say a few original words about the present day
