The working-class Furmańczyk family lived and worked at the Łódź textile factory for generations. After the fall of Communism, the factory went bankrupt; the Furmańczyks lost their jobs and their place in the world. Then a French investment group renovated the factory ruins, turning them into the largest shopping centre in Eastern Europe. The protagonists of this film watch the changes that are taking place in Europe, and try to find their place in the changing world. The cinema version also covers the history of the city of Łódź, and presents the untold story of this major investment in the city.
