The life of a Polish farmer, Wojtek, and his immediate environment, shown through the eyes of the young filmmaker, Sebastian. Despite the harsh working conditions he has known since childhood, he has never lost his joy of life, warm-heartedness and humour. Living all alone in a big house, he likes to welcome guests in search of company and friends in need of help. It’s where Paweł, a young alcoholic with nowhere to go, finds shelter. Wojtek does his best to look after him. Is he up to the challenge?
