NINA

Poland 130 min. min Spanish premiere

Synopsis

Nina is a story about an unexpected, difficult love, complicated choices, a story of people who treat life as a play or game and suddenly have to face painful reality. It is a story where losers and winners stand on the same side, where the world is not divided between  good and bad, hetero and homosexuals. This is a story of impulsive love, which doesn’t care for traditional divisions.
