Twenty students are on their way to a hotel internship. They wake up in a chilled bus, without a driver and with one in the group missing. Once at the hotel, all women are assigned the name “Ania” and the men “Pawel” and everyone is given strict tasks and responsibilities. Hotel guests should be addressed “customers”. The atmosphere is growing increasingly intimidating and the confused interns are gradually losing their grip on time and space. After her award-winning debut film ’Tower. A Bright Day’, Jagoda Szelc quickly established herself as one of Poland’s most interesting and bold new voices. With ’Monument’, Szelc presents a dense artistic psychological thriller where she once again shows that she is more interested in asking questions than giving answers.
