The Bench

The Bench

Piotr, a seller of cars he imports from Germany, and Kasia, a counterwoman, meet on a bench by the quay. Behind them, there is a canal boat they’re about to get on and cruise along the Odra River. She is looking for love. He is a full time seducer. The characters struggle between the hunger of love and the fear of emotion, between the longing for being close to someone and the inability to communicate, between the need for stabilization and the constant urge to seduce.
