Alicja does not remember any past events in her life and does not know, who she is. When her family finds her after two years since her disappearance, the woman does not wish to go back to the old and long forgotten life. She does not remember that she used to love her husband and little son. As time goes by, fragments of memories start coming back to Alicja and create a blurred and disturbing picture of a mystery ― of something that happened in the past. What is the mystery? Will the feelings that develop in her for the husband and son she has just met let her understand the past and create a happy life for herself and the family?
Every year, tens of thousands of people in Poland experience the fugue state. Fuga asks questions about identity and its constituents: what builds our own identity? Do we do it ourselves or is the product of the reality we live in? What would we do, if we woke up one day as the tabula rasa?
