An image of a contemporary city from the couchsurfers’ perspective. Warsaw is becoming a meeting place for people from different corners of the world, of different ages, with different life stories. What they have in common is a feeling of being lost and a dire need to run away from their solitude. Couchsurfing is becoming a platform of communication for totally different worlds – what may be any other reason why a Polish engineer in his fifties and a German student assemble together a Chinese model of a helicopter?
