One day my good friend from high school, Mariusz, called me and said: Paweł, I’m forty years old and I’ve just found out I was adopted. And that’s not the end. I have a sister, in Mexico. She found me on Facebook and we talked online. But Mariusz didn’t want to meet his biological mother. And when I contacted Daria it turned out she wants to dig up family secrets.
Daria struck me with her determination to erase the deceit that weighed on the family for 50 years. When I talked to Daria on the phone for the first time she was in her summer house in Cancun getting ready for a trip to Poland. She wanted to confront her mother even though they haven’t seen each other for 10 years. Daria told me she spoke to a Mexican fortune teller, who told her she would find her siblings and see her mother for the last time.
And I knew I had to start filming.
