"EDGE" is a story about a relationship between two people, balancing "on the edge". It is full of various emotions and set in an environment affected by the global pandemic and women's protests in Poland. We wanted not to give easy answers, but rather provide keys to interpretation for possible stories that could have happened and happened in one of the most difficult moments in the modern world. The film uses the Modal Underground dance technique, which is very physical and based on close contact. Balancing on the brink of perdition and destruction in many fields of human existence, is an always present element of our times. Which, without radical actions and awakening of consciousness, can lead to a catastrophe. EDGE portrays tense human stories, but it is the viewer who writes his own ending, in accordance with his own conscience and worldview.
