Koszałka’s first credited piece is a short-documentary about his own home life. At the time of filming he was living with his parents who would verbally abuse him everyday. The director is a self-proclaimed neurotic, giving the full credit for this to his upbringing and home life. He went on to make two follow-up documentaries on the subject It Will Be All Right (2004) and Let’s Run Away From Her (2010) creating his own type of therapy through his career. The film won several awards at the Krakow Film Festival and Prix Europa.
