Direct from its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, this Oscar contender seamlessly weaves together two deeply resonant narratives of identity set in Poland in 1962. Eighteen-year-old Anna, a sheltered orphan raised in a convent, is preparing to become a nun when she first meets her only living relative.
Her aunt Wanda, a worldly and cynical Communist Party insider, shocks Anna with the declaration that her real name is Ida and her Jewish parents were murdered during the Nazi occupation.
