On Short Leash is a drama about a young man Jakub. He finds out that his entire life was a lie. He has no choice but to immediately grow up and deal with a loss of his illusions. Or things will take a wrong turn. Nobody can help him. Not his mother, who told him that his father sails the seas and thus can’t be with him. Nor his father, who had not shown an interest in him. Now he shows interest , but only because his legitimate son does not care about him. No matter what, he is no Captain for sure. In addition, his sister Pavlina at the age of 16 found out as well that her life is not what she imagined. And that breaks her heart also.
