Superjednostka (Polish for Superunit) is a huge block of flats designed as a ‘housing machine’. Up to three thousand people can live on 15 floors of the building. The lifts only stop every three floors so the residents must go through a maze of corridors and stairs in order to get to their flats. The main characters of the documentary are people living in Superjednostka and going through important moments of their lives there. This is where their emotions throb, their expectations engender, and their desires come true… or not. 762 flat doors and 762 stories. We are opening only a few of them.

Namie, a fishermen town surrounded by a river and mountains, was severely damaged by earthquake, tsunami and the nuclear meltdown at Fukushima Daiichi when the 3.11 disaster struck the area.  Four years later, Namie remains an empty town abandoned by its residents. Reconstructions are underway to decontaminate the area. However, whether and when Namie residents are able to return to their hometown remain to be seen.
