Michal and Karina are Polish college students who have recently fallen madly in love and are enjoying a working holiday in Valencia. Their idyllic love story is interrupted when a solo scuba diving trip takes a dramatic turn. The couple arrive back in Poland with a disturbing secret that slowly takes its toll on their relationship. LASTING is a quiet, melancholic film about young love, which shows a couple becoming increasingly alienated from each other as they go from sunny Valencia to rainy Warsaw.
