Tomek, a single father of two teenagers and his mom win a last minute all-inclusive package to a tropical country in a radio quiz show. Over there, Tomek meets Natalia, his high school sweetheart, who is now a big TV star. She is accompanied by a seemingly ideal man; however, it turns out that old love will not be forgotten. Tomek’s family looks forward to an adventure of their life. But Egypt during Christmas brings them only a series of misfortunes. The problems grow like Egyptian pyramids from their very first day in the resort. They find out only a common action can save them from a disaster. The protagonists’ resourcefulness surprises even themselves. Tomek, geography teacher and grandma Krysia, a retired policewoman (a hillarious appearance of Alodna Janowska, cabaret artist and parodist) together with the kids make a unique combination of personalities and tempers. The saying that Poles can turn troubles into a life advanture proves to be true one more time…
