    • Synopsis
    • How to remember all that text? How to shoot love scenes? Are you really naked?
      What do you feel when you kiss a stranger and pretend to be the love of your life?
      Have you slept with her? Each of us, actors, heard some of these issues at least once ... (a week? A month? A year?) And each has lied. At least partially.
      We meet Her and Him, lost in the embrace on the set filming the soap opera, as the main characters of the hit series, and anti-heroes of their own lives. The story leads them into battle with their erotic desires, the growing instant media fame, and the contempt and envy of their underpaid colleagues who find consolation in mocking them with self-sufficient art snobbery.
      'Transition hero' producer, who legalizes his dirty money through making of this TV series needs them as pretty face models who will promise a better life for buyers of his goods, and they are awarded with money and fame, but their previous lives will begin to erode with the first cover of yellow press. In short, the real heroes of our time.
      Mutual sympathy turns into passion. One of them will mistake it for love, and reject everything he previously had. The other will think that every victim on the way to career success is justified, and she will readily sacrifice a likeable bird in the hand for possible two birds in the bush, richer and more powerful.
      As the popularity of the series increases, their private lives sink lower and lower. The illusion of a carefree life of the characters they interpret and their desire to live it after working hours will leave our heroes in the moral and emotional vacuum.
      The romance they have experienced will be transformed into a grotesque comedy. He will suffer personal and business lost. She will be deprived of the only genuine emotion in her life.
      And, eventually, both will think they won. Which one is right?
