Julia has a job as a maid in a run-down motel somewhere in the Polish countryside. When she's not cleaning rooms she spends time listening to death metal and playing the slot machines at the local bar. Desperately lonely, the person closest to her is her colleague Renata. Julia is different from other people and they never let her forget this fact. Yet this doesn't stop her hoping that she'll meet someone who will love her and accept her for who she is. That someone might be the likeable truck driver who seems to turn up at her motel more and more frequently. Polish director Tadeusz Łysiak's new film The Dress ostensibly tells a tale of otherness; the fact is that we should all be loved, regardless of the way we look.
