The arrival of a handsome 25-year-old Julian interrupts the routine family life of Aleksander, Olivia and Agata. A dark comical drama. Julian, a son Aleksander never knew about, visits the family as a stranger, completely different from them. This becomes even more apparent when a family whose car burned down knocks on their door in the middle of the night in need of help. Julian’s compassionate and humane reaction sets the mirror to Aleksander and his wife Olivia, wealthy upper-class people who live with their daughter under a bell jar and have long since lost touch with reality. The mechanical and empty relationships of a wealthy family that recently moved to the countryside at Aleksander’s request are exposed and inevitably begin to change. Through humorous situations, Aleksander, Olivia, and their 12-year-old daughter Agata will have to come to terms with the presence of a new household member Julian. Julian only stays with the family for two weeks, but no one remains the same after his visit. Redemption is a clinical study of a family that, through the tone of a black comical drama, explores the theme of emotionally empty elites and places it in the context of contemporary social issues.
