Jacek Borcuch : 2013
An emotional love story about Michal and Karina, a pair of Polish students who meet and fall in love during summer work in Spain. An unexpected nightmare brutally breaks into their carefree time in the heavenly landscape and changes their lives forever. Can a few seconds influence one's life? How can they change it? The moment in which we start wondering about this dilemma is the moment when the exciting journey into the unknown begins, a journey into human imagination, where one's intuition and instinct are the guides. The story is a contemporary observation of the human condition in a micro scale. Through the eyes of young people we observe the disintegration of their seemingly ordered world. We become emotionally attached to the destiny of the characters – unobtrusively though, but simply due to empathy and desiring to understand them. With them, or actually through them, we have the opportunity to face our own nature and ask more questions without answers. Jacek Borcuch's award-winning feature premiered at Sundance Film Festival 2013.
