"Zabić bobra" is a full of mystery and conspiracy story of 37 year old Eryk (Eryk Lubos), a former military officer who returns to his family home after years of secret military operations. Alone, surrounded only by tech gizmos and wilderness, he prepares for another secret operation, at the same time trying to deal with haunting demons of the past. Having thought he’s in control of his life, he meets a young woman who will quickly prove him wrong.
On the day of the film’s premiere in Karlovy Vary, Lubos has said to the press that ‘it is a film about searching for love and truth. About returns. We worked on the basis of confrontations with the director. It is also the first film in Poland which deals with the topic of PTSD . It is an important film and I gave it my best.’*
