Upon fleeing Poland in 1982 due to a growing fear of government collapse, Stanisław Koscik, along with his wife and two children, sought refuge in Northern Ontario, Canada. Fast forward to 2018. It’s been nearly a quarter of a century since he last saw home. His siblings miss him. Their children miss him. So what’s prevented him from going back?
At his daughter's urgent request, he journeys back 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.
