Her first and biggest success became her life curse. A documentary about the incredible life of Natalia Rolleczek, author of the famous book “Wooden Rosary”, where she criticised the Order of the Felician Sisters and, indirectly, the whole Catholic church. This caused her to be “pigeonholed” in a Catholic country as a fighting atheist. Several years ago the title was unexpectedly reprinted. Once again it caused controversy. This made the directors track the whole career of the author, her ups and downs, her truly heroic deeds as well as her “penance”.
