Maciek is no longer a boy, but has not yet become a man. As every man before him in the family, he wants to be a butcher and satisfy his father’s ambition. But unfortunately he is too sensitive to make an animal suffer. Conflicted, the young man turns to the care of an old and neglected orchard, the only memory left from his mother, and soon discovers his supernatural abilities.
