When Marzenka moves into the home of Marek’s mother, he feels stifled by his Polish cousin’s presence – he, the college dropout, she, the ambitious medical student. His subtle power trips and moodiness temporarily subside only after they skip out on a bill together at a restaurant. But every match has more than one round, and Marek comes out both the driven victor and the vanquished.
