A tragicomedy about a young construction worker who loses his face in a near-fatal accident that forever changes not only his appearance but also his life. Jacek loves heavy metal, his girlfriend and his dog. His family, his small hometown, his fellow parishioners all see him as an amusing freak. Jacek works at the construction site of what it is supposed to become the tallest statue of Jesus in the world. When a severe accident disfigures him completely, all eyes turn to him as he undergoes the first facial transplant in the country.

Mug is Szumowska's seventh full-length feature film. It premiered in February this year in the main competition of the 68th International Film Festival in Berlin and since then was presented at numerous film festivals around the world, including Sydney International Film Festival and Melbourne International Film Festival.
