Original name: Czułość
Genre: Drama

Maria - professionally fulfilled actress, running away from any relations, rebuffs every act of closeness. In their world there is no place for great ideas. Nation, identity, politics or economy are meaningless terms regarding what matters for main characters - defining one's self through non-committal human tensions and intensities. The spectator peeks at them in seemingly trivial situations and finds out what is the titular tenderness for each of them. He may observe how the confluence of events and decisions are leading to an ending full of contradictory emotions.
