Piotr Trzaskalski’s debut film, Edi, was Poland’s entry for Best Foreign Film at the Academy Awards. The title character, played by Henryk Golebiowski, is a drifter who meets up with a pair of brothers that pay him to act as bodyguard for their teenage sister. The sister has a lover who impregnates her. Edi claims that the baby is his; the brothers fire him and make him take the child. Edi discovers an entire new life as a single father.
