Starting their life together, far from the world, a young couple - she and he - discover a mysterious switch.

The plot of "Switch" follows the relationship of a young couple, who begin to build their life together far from the world. The discovery of a mysterious switch, hidden under the ivy of a tree trunk near by, unlocks their inner aspirations, desires and longings. Within time the love fades away and the two characters grow distant and alienated from each other.

Director’s statement
The development, dynamics and complexity of the relationship between a woman and a man is a topic of unceasing interest to me. Harmonious relationships in an intimate partnership are the engine of human happiness. However, they are often too difficult to achieve when two people share their daily lives for years. They are placed under the pressure of personal differences, selfishness, egocentrism, negation, fear and emptiness, leading to emotional withdrawal and destruction. "Switch" aims to explore and show the philosophical aspect of the ideal and complete love, which is impossible without intimacy, warmth, sharing and passion.
