A few days before his son’s First Communion, Michał heads to his hometown. He has some business to attend to, and return home as soon as possible. When he gets there, it turns out that he will have to stay for a few days. While walking the town streets, he encounters people he used to be close with, visits familiar places. What started out as a trivial trip slowly turns into an emotional life journey.
