    Synopsis A story about the search for love and the roles we play in life. Each of the four women pretend for one night to be someone else. Through this experience they learn something new about themselves. Their lives will never be the same. The film begins in “WARSAW BY NIGHT “, a club in the city centre that serves as the meeting point of different generations. On every storey in every room there is a bar, each of them in a different style and with different music. In every story, the character crosses the line and learns something about herself.

    Set in Warsaw, the plot of What’s Between Us starts on a Friday evening, lasts through the night and ends on a Saturday morning.
    It is a Friday evening when the city begins to throb with life. People gather round in pubs, clubs and discoteques… Couples emerge.
    An eighteen-year-old boy who suffers unrequited love and a girl who loves another girl, two women – a wife’s sister and a husband’s mistress, a thirty-year-old single man and a Ukrainian prostitute, an elderly woman and an elderly man.
    We follow and accompany them during the evening and the night.
    They spend a few hours together, playing their roles, putting on masks, looking for love, closeness and another human being.
    Differing in age, jobs and personalities, the characters are linked by the city space they search for another human being as well as by hopes of finding love.
    During the evening and the night, each of them will meet someone who can help them overcome their loneliness and understand themselves better. In the morning they meet at the same bus stop as they live in the same area.
    Every plot line should be told in a different pace, in a distinct voice.
    The characters move around the same streets, pop into the same bars, travel with the same taxi-driver, but yhey do not know one another.
    Each of them is trapped in their own story and their own emotions.
    It changes only at dawn…
