Upon escaping Poland in 1982 during the collapse of the Soviet Union, Stanisław Koscik and his wife and two children sought refuge in Canada. Fast forward to 2018. It's been nearly a quarter of a century since he last saw home. His siblings miss him, and their children miss him. So what's stopped him from going back? He journeys back at his children's request only to discover that the people and places he once knew have since evolved drastically. Stanisław is an in-depth look at the psyche of a migrant whose experiences left him with heartache, independence, and hope for a brighter future.
