For 11-year-old Lukas, an incredible adventure begins the moment he and his mom set off on a long awaited summer holiday trip. The joyful travel is suddenly interrupted by a car accident that results in the boys and his mom hospitalization. When it turns out Lukas’ mom is in a coma, the boy must be taken care of by his only relative – aunt Agatha, whom he gets to meet for the first time in his life. Agatha brings the boy to her own guesthouse by the seaside, and places him in a room his mom used to live in. It’s the room where Lukas accidently discovers a secret passage to a different dimension and soon learns what amazing and yet frightening mysteries the newly disclosed world hides. The blue door in his room is a gate to different reality. There he meets a dangerous creature, which he will have to face.

A spectacular and imaginative fairy tale for kids, young viewers, and the whole family. "Behind The Blue Door" is the most successful Polish movie for young viewers, and most awarded Polish family film in the world.
