Games is a short feature based on Ireneusz Iredyński's radio play Winda ('The Lift'). The entire story is played out in a lift which has got stuck. There are two people stuck inside. They begin to play a startling game. They concoct a shared life, telling each other imaginary stories of their first romantic and amusing meeting and follow right through to the dramatic ending of their acquaintanceship. However, the fiction starts to become intertwined with their real-life experiences. Their harmless game metamorphoses into a drama seething with extreme emotions. The film depicts how painful and inexorable the games we play with those close to us can be, how we are sometimes incapable of dealing with issues from the past and just how great the power of our imaginations is.
