SM (2014) [the original title in Polish] is a film telling a story about extraordinary people and their equally outstanding paths of life. Three intimate conversations about passion, rebellion and suffering. A journey into the depths of the human mind in search of an answer to a question: how important are willpower and fortitude in our life? Finally, it is a documentary about three people suffering from multiple sclerosis, who decide to change their life after hearing the diagnosis and, against all odds, live. The film's characters include: Emilia Ratajczak, a painter, Wojciech Stańko, a photographer and Gabriela Zenka, a dancer. Each of them is of different age and in a different stage of life. All of them received a ‘sentence of no appeal’, as Emilia says. Is it possible to live knowing you’re doomed? What artistic forms can rebel against the inevitable take? How much effort does fighting for your own passion cost? For your being, remaining, here and now? Actually, ‘SM’ is not a film about the illness, but about passion. Passion, which is, in fact, equal to the strenuous will of life.
