When the family business goes bankrupt, Kuba (12) and Mikołaj’s (8) parents are forced to leave Poland to find work abroad. “I am Kuba” is a coming-of-age film about Kuba, who must take care of his little brother while his parents are away. As times goes by, Kuba becomes a teenager and rejects the big responsibility on his young shoulders. It is estimated that only in Poland, more than 100,000 children are left by parents who are forced to work abroad. “I am Kuba” is an intimate film about children growing up as ‘euro-orphans.’
