Alicja has no memory and no knowledge about how she lost it. In two years, she manages to build a new, independent self, away from home. She doesn't want to remember the past. When her family finds her, Alicja is forced to fit into the role of mother, daughter and wife, surrounded by what seem to be complete strangers. But Alicja sees them as strangers, and whatever ordeals she experienced while she was missing has eradicated the cheerful, compliant personality they remember. As Alicja learns more about the woman she supposedly was, the more fractured her precarious sense of self becomes. FUGUE is a psychological journey of self-realization through the darkest parts of humanity, accomplished with unsettling cinematography and truly striking direction from Agnieszka Smoczynska.
