Adam and Anna are young newlyweds who decide to take a sojourn away from their charming Parisian lifestyle to connect with their ancestral roots in Poland. Incidentally, being new parents, this adventure is also their long-delayed honeymoon and an opportunity for them to grow closer to one another as they tap into their respective Polish heritage. This classic fish-out-of-water tale naturally finds its well-meaning protagonist couple at hilarious and feuding odds with one another when it becomes apparent they have quite different goals for this trip. Part European travelogue, part classic French romantic comedy, this under-the-radar delight is full of surprises along the way, including a very pointed examination of what it means to be Jewish in Europe in the 21st century. Moreover, this wild romp, which is chock full of charming shenanigans and warm humor, is a welcome comic salve that goes down smooth and sweet.
