Between Us is the first feature film debut in the genre of psychological thriller. The story is about the choice that has to be made between loved ones and morality when there is no other option for development. The two main characters of the film – Sasha and Anya – are forced to make this choice: Sasha in relation to her own husband, Anya in relation to her son. The drama of the situation is exacerbated when they are involved in crime.


“It was important for me to tell this story because the focus is on a woman, or rather two women, who are fighting for the right to be heard in the predominantly patriarchal world around. Each of them is pressured by a complicated past, full of violence, betrayal and unlove. I am trying to show how terrible the consequences of unprocessed past traumas can be and how, as a result, they shape the character. This story is about “dislikes” and I know what I’m talking about.”
