In 1997, three Polish immigrants come to London and find themselves sharing a house in Greenford: Maja, an overqualified assistant librarian; Adam, a hard working, hard drinking carpenter; and Kuba, a London cabbie who has shelved his promising physiotherapy career. They all have different reasons for leaving Poland.
They experience the best and the worst of a society in which they are trying to find acceptance. As they struggle to find and keep work in London, they are forced to confront social prejudices and their own demons.
This is a moving tale of young foreigners making their way in London and their personal journey of discovery. They come to realise they can change but stay true to themselves.
