“House of Ants” tells a tense story of the relationship between a mother and her 14-year-old son, who repeatedly exceeds her limits of endurance. Oskar is passionate about insects – he has a whole collection of ants and a youtube channel dedicated to living creatures where he sells and exchanges different species. The collection keeps growing and new species are added – this time not only ants, but scorpions, spiders, maybe even a snake. The only problem is Oskar’s mom Kasia is an aesthete working in fashion – terrified of creatures living in her home.

“House of Ants” is the film about passion, motherhood and respecting the differences between people and boundaries in a shared space. While Kasia tries to befriend the unwanted flat mates and Oskar learns he can’t do whatever he wants, we become fond of their relationship and even of the insects sharing the screen with them.
