When Walbrzych experiences a series of mysterious child kidnappings, Alicja Tabor, a journalist, shows up in town.

During her investigation, Alicja picks up a trail of dramatic events which started decades earlier. In her quest for truth, she faces a new threat as well as the one she had been running away from here entire adult life – the shocking secrets of her family and her own childhood. As the story progresses, the dark criminal scheme binds everything together: the child disappearances, the war-tainted past, the legend of a lost treasure and even Alicja’s fate, who during her journey faces pure evil, but also finds allies standing on the side of good.

Fifteen-year-old Lara is determined to fulfill her dream of getting into a prestigious ballet school and having a career as a ballerina. As a sensitive girl, she also dreams of finally getting out of the boy's body that she's been imprisoned in since birth. First-time director Lukas Dhont, one of the discoveries at this year's Cannes Festival, made a film that is mature and extraordinarily subtle about how oppressive one's own body can be and how exhausting it can be to fight its limitations-all the more so when that body is young and impatient, restless and seeking its own identity, and everything has to happen here and now.

A Japanese couple stuck with part-time jobs and hence inadequate incomes avail themselves of the fruits of shoplifting to make ends meet. They are not alone in this behaviour. The younger and the older of the household are in on the act. The unusual routine is about to change from care-free and matter-of-fact to something more dramatic, however, as the couple open their doors to a beleaguered young girl. The reasons for the family's habit and their motivations come under the microscope.

Stuck in Staten Island, married to a kind but oblivious husband, and living with kids that mostly ignore her, 40-year-old Lisa Spinelli (Maggie Gyllenhaal) plods through her days teaching kindergarten with growing numbness. Her one source of joy is an evening poetry class across the bay in Lower Manhattan. But one day everything changes—Lisa discovers that a five-year-old boy in her class may be the poet she can only dream of being. She becomes fascinated. Could this child be a prodigy? A Mozart? Fascination turns to obsession as Lisa pushes boundaries to protect the boy from a banal life she knows too well. In a harrowing climax, Lisa risks her career, her family, and her freedom to nurture his genius and possibly tap into her own.
