Franciszek Kalina (Ireneusz Czop) returns to Poland after years of living abroad, alarmed that his younger brother (Maciej Stuhr) is at odds with the residents of their village. Upon arrival, Franciszek discovers that the source of the dispute is a dark secret from years ago. The estranged brothers try to find out the truth. Their investigation only deepens the conflict, which turns into outright aggression. The secret, once revealed, will leave a tragic mark on the life of the two brothers and their neighbours. A film inspired by real events.
