About the Film

Poland. Dir Olga Chajdas. With Julia Kijowska, Eliza Rycembel, Andrzej Konopka. 130min. Cert 12


Nina, a teacher in her mid-30s struggling to have a child, looks for a surrogate mother. It would seem that with her husband, she has found an ideal candidate, yet Nina falls for the woman who could have given birth to her child.

What BFI have to say

In a tale of passion where conventional boundaries dissolve and overturn expectations, Nina and Wojtek hope starting a family will rescue their marriage, but they need a surrogate. A chance encounter may have solved this issue, until Nina’s lesbian love affair complicates their decisions. An assured debut from Olga Chajdas, one of the directors of current Netflix success 1983.
