This is not a love story

– If you start with having a relationsship with something dead, like a stone. Then you can move on to trees and flowers and some animals. And finally , you can try with people.

This is not a love story is a story of two reluctant heroes – Kowalski and Vera.

At least that’s their names in one of the scenes. They talk, dance and never stop asking questions: Who did what? When? Where? And why?

A delicate search for context and connections, which always seem to be slightly beyond our reach, the journey becomes not about the destination, but the transformation and reflection along the way. The journey keeps starting over. Again and again as in a road movie dance.
