Synopsis

Drama, presented as if it were unscripted documentary. An ex-pat American filmmaker, Katie, chooses unstable London-based Polish cinema worker (and aspiring actress) Alicja, 32, to appear in her film about migrants in Britain in the Brexit era. But Katie begins to intrude into Alicja's life and threaten her relationship with her boyfriend Michael, who works in post-production. Alicja gets a role playing a Russian call girl in a crime drama called 'Thunder & Angels'. When terminal illness strikes one of the key figures, the others are left reeling.
