Synopsis / Plot
The story about a successful photographer who practically wrecks her life because of a romantic obsession with a man whom she meets while on a fashion shoot in Paris. Karen (Sonja Richter) is working so constantly that she has little time for her husband (Michael Nyqvist) and daughter. When she spies a handsome man on the street in Paris, she feels an electric attraction that changes her life. She learns that Machik (Marcin Dorocinski) is a professor visiting from Poland, and she pursues him relentlessly, even going so far as to follow him all the way to Warsaw and ensconcing herself in an apartment right across the street from the flat where he lives with his wife and family. While Machik initially encourages the romance, he soon tires of Karen and tries to extricate himself from the relationship.
