Story

Little Crushes tells the story of Kasia, Asia and Piotr. The women live together and run a small business clearing out apartments when the owners move away or die. Piotr, who recently left his wife and quit his job, finds himself in competition with Kasia for Asia’s affection. Tensions increase and emotions run high but no one is prepared to make the next move, preferring to play safe instead, rather than risk crushing what they have. Essentially they manage to maintain this delicate balance but it seems inevitable that emotions cannot stay buried forever and eventually something has to give.
