The Son of Snow Queen is a combination of drama and a modern tale about the fight between good and evil. The plot is set in two inter-penetrating dimensions: the real one, and the one made of poetry and fairy-tale. Marcin (Maciej Bożek) is a six-year-old boy yearning for love and warmth. With the help of a retired writer Kazimierz (Franciszek Pieczka), he manages to escape into a realm populated by fictional characters straight from the novels of Hans Christian Andersen. He feels safe there, protected by a screen of fantasy that separates him from reality, where he cannot find a place for himself ― for various reasons. His single mother, Anna (Michalina Olszańska), who is in her twenties, has problems making ends meet. When she meets Kamil (Rafał Fudalej), hope for a better future emerges. Will Anna choose the right path to go? Sometimes, when we are confused, we tend to make mistakes that cannot be undone...
