Watch the trailer for Oscars® shortlisted documentary feature COMMUNION in theaters January 4

Living amid domestic instability and teenaged volatility, a sister and brother play out their lives on camera.

At fourteen, Ola is already functioning as the woman of the house, cooking and cleaning for her lethargic father and helping her energetic autistic brother Nikodem prepare for his first Holy Communion.

Throughout, she longs for her mother, whose absence is never explained, yet always deeply felt.

As the date of Communion nears, it becomes an opportunity for the family to meet up and Ola is entirely responsible for planning the perfect family celebration.

"Communion" is a portrait of young womanhood and crash course in growing up that teaches us that no failure is final, and that change is possible and needed, especially when love is in question.
