Because of Love

A simple story about love welded into a mystical drama. On a train station, Ed – a loser and rebel of a failed rebellion – meets Róża, a homeless girl who run away home in the search of love. He becomes her life mentor. Despite the initial distrust, she’s gradually getting more and more addicted to Ed. Taken from the station and a moment later abandoned in a homeless shelter, she’s taken care of by a friend nun. There, in the book Ed gave her (“The Song of Songs”), she finds a land of words and perfect feelings. Awaiting her lover, Róża develops her love based on a pattern of the love for God and balancing on the verge of blasphemy. This feeling confronted against the brutal reality reaches higher and deeper than it’s possible.
