One of the biggest Polish film premieres of 2012. A film eagerly anticipated for over a decade. It is the story of the late 90s generation and the three friends behind the music: Magik, Focus and Rahim. The fact-based film charts the relentless struggle for success of hip-hop group Paktofonika, against the backdrop of crumbling traditional values in dreary 90s Silesia, Poland. The hip-hop ideals and rebellious, against-the-system-lyrics juxtaposed with money and fame sought by the artists are all superbly captured in this dark, unforgettable drama.
