Nina and Wojtek are an odd couple in search of a surrogate mother for the child that is to save their relationship. One day, Nina rear-ends the car that attractive Magda is driving. Wojtek sees this as the perfect opportunity for the two of them to seduce the young woman and fulfill their plan. But then Nina starts to develop feelings for Magda. Olga Chajdas' debut film is a sensitive portrait of a strong woman exploring new (emotional) territory as well as an energetic celebration of lesbian sexuality.
