Mela and Przemek come to Warsaw to housesit for their uncle. It is more than just a luxury flat, it’s also an extraordinary one. Mela starts digging into the history of the house, only to discover that it is on the site of the pre-war German embassy. The lift in the building not only carries passengers between floors, but also enables time travel between August 2012 and August 1939.
