Made in Poland is a story about a young altar boy, Boguś Kowalski, who wakes up one day with an overwhelming urge to amend the world. However, that urge is accompanied by rebellion... He needs support for his actions and seeks advice from his mentors: Polish teacher, priest and mother — a devoted fan of Krzysztof Krawczyk. Boguś establishes a “rebellious community association”, for which he wants to recruit his friends and neighbours. All of a sudden, he meets an intriguing red-haired girl... Unfortunately, now is not the time for a romance, as he comes into conflict with a local mafia.
