Nina and Wotjek are a married (but mismatched) couple; They’re eager to have a child, but Nina can’t conceive. When a chance encounter introduces them to Magda, Wotjek believes they may have found a suitable surrogate. But meeting the fiercely independent, single-minded Magda awakens a repressed desire in Nina, causing events to spiral out of everyone’s control.

Reviews

  • "The performances are excellent, Kijowska in a perpetual clench and Rycembel all relaxed and open. And scenes among Magda’s friends, who discourage her from a getting involved with another straight woman, resonate with reality. Most important, writer/director Chajdas grasps how the intimacy of a surrogacy arrangement is emotionally fraught. "

  • "“Nina” is notable for its energetic celebration of lesbian sexuality...."
