The story of eleven-year-old Łukasz whose mother is in a coma as a result of the injuries she suffered in a car accident. The boy goes to live in foster care at a seaside resort with an aunt he never met. Łukasz misses his mother and finds it difficult to adapt to the new circumstances. Feeling lonely, he desperately wants to get away from the place where he doesn’t feel at home. He accidentally discovers that the blue door in the building leads to a fairy tale world; a world that at first appears very friendly but, as Łukasz will soon learn, is so only until a certain point.
