Another Ukrainian feature film will be released on Netflix in January. The psychological thriller Between Us by Solomiya Tomashchuk will join the series of films by Ukrainian directors.
The film was created by UP UA STUDIO with the support of the Ukrainian State Film Agency. It was only recently released in Ukrainian theaters on November 2 this year.
The film tells the story of the choice the characters have to make between their loved ones and morality. The plot revolves around an abusive relationship between two women. A girl Sasha, played by Anastasia Pustovit, with a traumatic past and chaotic love affairs, and a doctor Anya, played by Irma Vitovska. The characters intersect and become hostages to an accidental murder that radically changes their lives.
The film raises a number of acute social issues: family violence, drug addiction, the position of women in society and PTSD.

- In its report, Netflix said that in the first half of 2023, users from all over the world watched about 4 million hours of Ukrainian films and TV series on the streaming platform.
