Barbara, Włodek’s wife, leaves a letter stating that she has left him for another man. The distraught Włodek, 70, has a heart attack. His long-lost son Paweł, who lives in Germany, and grandson Maciek, who lives in England with his mother, immediately come to see him. When Włodek’s condition improves, all three begin a search for their wife/mother/grandmother. Over the course of the few days that they spend together, they will try to fix the strains on the family relationship.
