84-year-old Vika is a true star of Warsaw nightclubs. As a charismatic and colorful DJ surrounding herself with young people, she seems unstoppable and keeps repeating that age is just a number. But as Vika’s health starts to deteriorate, she has to come to terms with the passing of time, finding purpose in bringing joy to other seniors – just as lonely as she is. Told with staged musical parts “Vika!” is a bitter-sweet portrait of a woman who has to face aging yet celebrating life till the very end.
