An amazing atmosphere, interesting people, and extraordinary places create a story about everyday life in the Warsaw district of Praga. The director looks at the lives of the inhabitants – Adaś, a pawn-shop owner, with whom poor Varsovians leave their last goods; Kicia, a grandmother feeding the local cats; and members of a local band from Różycki Market.
