Julia (Julia Jentsch) is a successful artist. She loves her parents and a husband (Maciej Stuhr) who is a famous composer. Suddenly everything collapses. Sickness and death from a close perspective are different from what Julia expected - much more absurd, nonsensical, and ridiculous.

33 Scenes from Life is a film about the moment in life when we become adults. It’s a story about stepping into the real world, where pain, suffering and doubts are inevitable.

Some of the most intense emotions were aroused (at the Gdynia Festival) by a very personal picture from Małgorzata Szumowska who, quoting her own words, had made a film about the loss of her near and dear ones. Szumowska had the courage to break in every respect with the elegiac poetics, generally applied in stories about death, revealing its very ordinary, even trivially prosaic features.
