"It's a story about a clash of values in which a child is taken away from a family because of its inappropriate name," explains director Wlodarczyk. The title of the miniseries is the unorthodox name of the child that piques the local social workers. The stories of other alternative-lifestyle families – especially at the turn of the millennium – were altered by the media. The miniseries asks a universal question: Where is the boundary between individual freedom and social norms? Can you actually live off the grid today?
