Simple Desires is an emotionally charged tale of a family fracturing under the strain of life’s disappointments. An artistic woman, a husband who turns to crime to make ends meet, and a son led wayward by teenage lust struggle in this story set against the backdrop of an unknown Polish city.
Directed by Marek Stacharski
