Overview

Ola (Zofia Stafiej), a rebellious teenager from a small Polish city, sets off to bring her largely estranged father’s body home after he dies working on a construction site in Ireland. It will turn out to be the trip of her lifetime, a trip into the unknown, where she will come to know a different world and meet people who will change her approach to life.

Set-in modern-day Poland and Ireland, I Never Cry is a piercing, realistic look at the difficulties faced by families separated by emigration, told against the backdrop of the life of Polish workers abroad. Writer-director Piotr Domalewski’s (Silent Night) explores the cruelly ubiquitous loss of a parent through the eyes of a young woman and prompts the viewer to reconsider their role in the lives of others.
