Rage tells a story about Adam, a TV presenter in his thirties, married to beautiful Edyta, and a father of two small children, who is entangled in complicated business and family relations. While jogging along a Warsaw ring road, the protagonist is calling his close family and business partners, thus letting us in on his secrets. Then, an unexpected chain of events in the evening puts in question all of the life choices he has made so far. The films raises questions about the limits of one’s honesty toward themselves and people around them, and about the price one must pay for striving to be successful and for self-actualisation.
