Być jak Kazimierz Deyna (Being Like Deyna)

Być jak Kazimierz Deyna (Being Like Deyna) is a humorous coming-of-age story about more than a few relationships and life choices, where Deyna and Boniek score several goals, white socks have the power of an aphrodisiac, desire leads to purity, and a Polish mother settles the score with Eastern markets.
