The In-Laws” is a dramedy that takes place at a wedding reception after a ceremony during which the sacramental “yes” was not uttered. The engagement was broken off practically on the steps of the church, on the day of the wedding. By the groom, Łukasz. Nobody knows why. Outrage, commotion, tears… But since the guests are already here, and some have traveled a long way, it’s only polite to at least invite them to lunch. The parents of the almost-newlyweds meet in the back of a wedding venue. This is their story. They come from two different worlds, different social strata. Małgorzata and Andrzej, the groom’s parents, belong to the Polish upper class. They are well educated and wealthy. One might even call them “bourgeoisie”.  Wanda and Tadeusz, the bride’s parents, are simple, uneducated people, who are also much poorer. The working class. At first, both couples are in shock. Weronika and Łukasz, despite hailing from different social backgrounds, seemed to be happy and in love. What really happened?
