Brothers Leszek and Janek return to their home village to attend the funeral of their father, whom they hadn’t seen in years. When they learn that he left the house and land to a certain foundation, their anger and irritation escalate. Then they find a car in the barn; a Warszawa M20 – the car owned by Karol Wojtyła (later pope John Paul II) when he was still a bishop in Poland…
