Marcin, a student at the University of Physical Education, is planning to become a mountain rescuer. Climbing is his passion. Marcin is fond of Marta, a second-year student but despite his efforts, the girl seems not to notice him. That changes once Marcin accidentally finds himself at a church meeting in a charismatic community – an event that changes his life…

A story about the phenomenon of faith, the price that has to be paid for its deep dimensions, and the amazing experiences attributed to it.
