Two brothers, who managed to escape Soviet work camp, are unable to escape from each other. They love but at the same time they hate each other. One of them is an artist and a dreamer, the other one – a pragmatic scientist. They are like fire and water. Throughout their lives they had to rely on each other: in the Stalinist work camp, in communist Russia and then, after repatriation, in capitalist Poland. Their adventurous life consists of continuous adversities that, despite their arguments and quarrels, they are always able to overcome because they stick together. Their age – one of them is 80 and the other 83 years old – does not stand in a way. They are full of vigour and humour and they have lots of new, crazy ideas.
