Cyprian, Filip, Ola and Kuba – four, out of fifteen of young patients who are in a long-term coma. Their parents are determined to help the and bring them back to life. The film presents an unusual story of people, who are not giving up in the face of tragedy. They are filled with hope and fight for the health of their children at the “Alarm Clock” clinic located near Warsaw.

Most Polish hospitals serve as a sort of a checkroom to children in a comma, while the Alarm Clock clinic is a worldwide phenomenon – it offers just fifteen beds, but managed to wake up eight patients in one year.
