Pawel, an ambitious young professional, is neglecting his beautiful wife, Ewa. They hope a long-awaited vacation aboard a yacht will recharge their marriage, but the plan is shattered when Pawel says he needs to return to work early to tend to a multi-million dollar contract. On their way back home, they meet an older man who wants to help the young couple, but his unorthodox methods go a bit too far. Full of sudden, nasty turns, The Third is not only a taut, tense drama about contemporary modern relationships, but also an allegory about modern-day Poland, a former Eastern bloc country with a checkered history of uncertainties and contradictions. In Polish with English subtitles.
