Tomek suffers from ‘savant syndrome’. Jacek works from home as a web administrator, who allows him time to take care of his ill brother. Whenever he has to leave the house for even a moment, he leaves his brother in the care of their unlikeable neighbour. When one day she is unable to stay with Tomek, Jacek turns to their new neighbour Magda for help.
