POLISH TITLE: SASZKA
In the 1990s, in a small Polish town, a young Ukrainian named Saszka gets a message about the death of the man with whom she entered into a sham marriage a long time ago. When the police start asking uncomfortable questions, the memories and faces from the past return to her. With great attention to visual details, including realistic photographs and sets, the film tells the story of finding one’s own way and making a definite closing of some chapters of one’s life.
