Production Report featured in
German Films Quarterly 02/2016

Trapped in a small Polish village in the middle of nowhere, desperate to escape and live a different life, young Anna suddenly sees her opportunity to change everything when Andrzej and Joanna, a rich couple from Warsaw, stop off in their search for a nearby ruin. Offering to be their guide, Anna seeks to make herself indispensable to them, not only driving a wedge between Andrzej and Joanna but also becoming a 'better' Joanna than the original! And the more and more she assumes the role, the greater a threat she becomes as her pursuit for freedom, her longing for the existence she does not have, becomes fatally destructive to all concerned.
