    • Synopsis
    • Police officers from a provincial police station raid a still in the woods. The unit is shot at and one of the officers wounded. The moonshiner manages to escape.
      Simultaneously, the body of a young woman is found drifting in a boat on the lake.
      The circumstances of her death are mysterious and both cases come to be assigned to Inspector Iza Deren.
      At the local police station, two officers who disappeared while on duty and have not been heard from over the last few days, are anxiously awaited. One of them is the partner of Iza and the father of her unborn children...
      "Waterline" is a crime story set in the background of provincial Poland, a story of searching for the truth and the struggle for justice.
      The criminal intrigue is interwoven with the personal drama of the heroine and it reveals her resolute determination and strength.
      Iza Deren takes us through a world full of crime and hidden secrets. The layers of lies she peels back uncover a seeming normality and the hell which opens beneath her feet engulfs many people close to her. It even touches and scorches her, too.
