SYNOPSIS:

Anna, Maggie, and Ilona are three women all living in rural areas on the outskirts of Poland. Anna wants to be a hair dresser, Maggie dreams of leaving home and seeing the world, and Ilona desperately hopes for a better life for her and her son. Each woman decides to take a trip to Warsaw (a city they've only encountered through their television screens), with the hope of changing their futures. Warsaw Available is a documentary about the dramatic social divisions in modern Poland. It delves into the question of identity, trying to determine how much of a person is simply where they're from and the context they were raised in. A personal account of three lives trying to make sense in a world beyond their understanding.
