Newly arrived from England to marry his fiancee Zaneta, Peter has been given a gift of her family's ramshackle country house in rural Poland. It's a total fixer-upper, and while inspecting the premises on the eve of the wedding, he falls into a pile of human remains. The ceremony proceeds, but strange things begin to happen... During the wild reception, Peter begins to come undone, and a dybbuk, the iconic ancient figure from Jewish folklore, takes a toehold in this present-day celebration-for a very particular reason, as it turns out.
The final work by Marcin Wrona, who died just as Demon was set to premiere in Poland, is part absurdist comedy, part love story-that scares, amuses, and charms in equal measure.
Plot summary from IMDb: A bridegroom is possessed by an unquiet spirit in the midst of his own wedding celebration, in this clever take on the Jewish legend of the dybbuk.
