Adam, who works abroad, visits his family home in the Polish countryside on Christmas Eve. He initially keeps secret the  real reason  for his unexpected visit, but he soon begins to let his relatives in on his plans. His father, his brother, with whom Adam is in conflict, and his sister and her husband will all play special parts as the intrigue develops. The situation becomes even more complicated when the Christmas guest announces that he is to become a father. Then, as Polish tradition dictates, alcohol appears on the table and no-one in the family can possibly predict the huge impact that subsequent events of this Christmas night will have on their lives.

The film is a full length debut of the director.
