By turns, a sensuous angel and incorrigible hellion, Hala (Claire Danes) is her father’s (Gabriel Byrne) favorite and a thorn in her mother’s (Lena Olin) side. She is a young girl-woman teetering at the crossroads of destiny, equipped only with her mother’s body and her father’s mind. In her effort to wrestle from life all that she thinks it owes her, she is sucked into the spiral of her family’s history and into adventures which she conducts late at night through the basement window. When her escapades get her into “trouble” with a handsome outsider Russell Schuster (Adam Trese), a “Polish Wedding” is planned – one that doesn’t quite go as intended.
