Igor, a professional boxer, has to finish his boxing career following a lost fight. Feeling broken down and abandoned, he seeks consolation in an active night life. Gradually, a thought start about leaving “something” after his life is over; that “something” is a child. But he is not at his best in relationships with women. At last he meets a Vietnamese woman, a trader at a local open-air market, who agrees to give birth to his child in exchange for a Polish citizenship.
