After their mother’s death, 35 year-old. Aga starts to look after her teenage brother, Miłosz. She’s keeping her romantic relationship with Maja a secret from him

After their mother’s death, 35 year-old Aga starts to look after her teenage brother, Miłosz. She starts playing the role of both parents to him, but there is one thing she’s keeping a secret from him – her romantic relationship with Maja. Will the three of them manage to build a new family model in the midst of a conservative small town community? How will the xenophobic mindset that Miłosz is surrounded by affect the relationships within his home?

“Silent Love” is a coming-of-age and a coming-out story about taking on new roles, and redefining the old ones. It’s a tender story about the courage to love.
