KNIVES OUT

by Przemysław Wojcieszek

synopsis

Six twentysomethings meet at a lakeside summerhouse. This is their first time getting together since high school. Some of them have started careers, while others have not. Some of them enjoy the pleasures in life, while others vent their hidden frustrations. The seventh character is a young Ukrainian named Solomia who works at the same company as one of the evening’s protagonists, Igor. Solomia is an outsider and is at times an object of hatred on the part of Hubert, who persuades the others, drunk and lost, to take part in an act of violence against the girl.
