Fenomen (Phenomenon) is a comedy with three main protagonists: a television star named Agnieszka, a spoiled billionaire daddy’s girl named Olivia, and her best friend Jadzia – a girl with an amazing heart, but with little brains. Although the three young women are very different from one another, they do have one thing in common. All three are still looking for the man of their dreams, someone truly remarkable… Will they find him at a film casting session?
