Film description

20-year-old Radka and 40-year-old Marzena rent a small apartment together. As nurses, they care for disabled children, and make extra cash in the evenings on the detox ward. The younger of the two is struggling to regain custody of her three-year old son, as the older tries to succeed in successive relationships with men. Everything changes when Marzena asks Radka to take her shift in this painfully real, yet sensitive look at the difficult lives of two women.
