6 Degrees is inspired by Milgram's 'Six degrees of separation' theory with its assumption that every person in the world can be reached through 6 personal connections. The crew tries to explore the chain of connections between two randomly drawn protagonists: a young punk-rock musician from Warsaw, Poland, and a farmer from a small village in Mexico. Cameras follow the everyday life of the protagonists and try to discover what’s hidden beneath their everyday masks. Doesn't the longing for love, acceptance, career, friendship and a decent life reminds us of ourselves?
