The bond between Nina and Wojtek seems less than an ideal partnership. Maybe that’s because she’s a brittle high school French teacher from an upper-middle-class intellectual family and he’s a mechanic clearly out of his element in their elegant apartment. Airport security guard Magda is in a relationship with chic stewardess Ada, but she plays the field in the frequent times her lover is away. Then one day Nina absentmindedly backs into Magda’s car, conveniently near Wojtek’s shop. Attracted to Magda’s natural beauty and palpable inner strength, Wojtek suggests to Nina that they seduce the young woman into being the surrogate they need to conceive the child that’s meant to hold them together. But an unexpected love story develops slowly between two women which goes from being kept behind closed doors to public places.
