    • Synopsis
    • It's not a romantic comedy because here love is more profound. It's not a drama because no one is complaining at their fate. It's a story of three young immigrants who try to find their place in a new world... in Poland. An Afghan with a post-war trauma, a Ukrainian lost and confused by her own body and a Belarusian who's running away from painful love. What do we have in common with them? Everything. What divides us from them? Everything. See a unique film which moves and demolishes stereotypes, by showing people who surround us in our everyday life and whom we don't notice. Live through what Paul McCartney and Stevie Wonder were singing about - “We all know that people are the same wherever you go. There is good and bad in everyone”.
