Director Jan P. Matuszyński Screenplay Robert Bolesto Cinematography Kacper Fertacz Editing Przemysław Chruścielewski Cast Andrzej Seweryn, Dawid Ogrodnik, Aleksandra Konieczna, Andrzej Chyra

Beksiński is a gentleman with arachnophobia, despite his hardcore sexual fantasies and his fondness for painting disturbing dystopian works. Beksiński is a family man who wants only
the best for his loving wife Zofia, neurotic son Tomasz and the couple's aging mothers. His
daily painting eventually pays off and he makes a name for himself in contemporary art. Good Catholic woman Zofia tries to hold the family together, but troubled son Tomasz proves to be a handful with his violent outbursts and suicidal threats. Their relief is brief when he starts dating women and becomes a radio presenter and movie translator, and the concerned parents must be on constant watch to prevent their son from hurting himself. But Beksiński never believed that family life would always be sunshine and rainbows.
