Throughout the years we meet thousands of people until one day we meet the one person who changes our life forever. This is what happened to Agata (Olga Bołądź), a successful volleyball player falls in love with Jacek (Michał Żebrowski).. From then her life was supposed to be a fairytale – a beautiful wedding, kids, and a house in the mountains. Those plans are interrupted by one phone call. To save her life she needed a bone marrow transplant. Agata begins her race against time. She will fight for herself, for the man she loves and for a child she desires to have more than anything else in the world.

The story is inspired by the life of Agata Mróz-Olszewska, a famous Polish volleyball player.
