If love is a battlefield, then this war is just getting started!
Former swaggering showman, Tomek (Maciej Stuhr), and modest music teacher Ania (Agnieszka Wiedlocha), are the nation's top celebrity ‘it’-couple-in-love.
At Ania’s request, Tomek agrees to hold their wedding in the country with his family. But these woods are far from a romantic fantasy. With long lost relatives and explosive personalities, this couple must fight for their happily ever after with family and friends in tow.
This stand-alone romantic comedy is hilarious, whether you’ve previously met Ania and Tomek or not! This is a whole new ‘Planet’ in the beautiful Polish countryside.
