“‘Keep Away From Fire’ also presents an intimate story of a particular family told from the inside. Issues like juvenescence, changing, adolescence, mutual drifting apart and bringing together are shown within one family. That picture is an illustration of a ritual called ‘Postrzyżyny’. At the age of seven boys are taken from the mother to the care and education of the father. It is the moment when a boy becomes an adult, which is symbolized by shaving his head.”
