Director's Biography:

Olga Chajdas was born in 1983 in Poznan, Poland. She graduated in Film Production at the Lodz Film School. In 2009 she completed courses in Andrzej Wajda’s School of Film Directing. Olga started working as an Assistant Director. Among her work is Oscar nominated In darkness by Agnieszka Holland. She has directed plays for theatre, award winning television series The Deep End. Her short 3xLove won Grand Prix at Distances Short Film Festival in Dublin and Morning Has Broken was premiered at Raindance Festival 2017. Nina is Olga’s full-length feature debut.


After twenty years, Nina's marriage to Wojtek is going nowhere, partly because of their failed attempts to have children. When they meet a young woman, Magda, they decide to propose that she become a surrogate mother for their child. The energetic, apparently carefree Magda breaks open Nina's world. But things get more complicated when Nina suddenly feels attracted to Magda.
