Poland, 1962. Ida, orphaned as an infant and brought up in a convent, is about to take her vows. But before she does, the mother superior wants Ida to meet Wanda, an unknown aunt.
At their first meeting, Wanda tells a shocked Ida "You're Jewish." The two, pure believer (Ida) and the free-living, atheist (Wanda) then embark upon a quest to discover what happened to Ida's parents, a combination road trip, detective tale, and ultimate melding of black and white worlds to shades of grey.
Ida won an Oscar for Best Foreign Language film.
