An eleven-year-old boy nicknamed Brzucho (Belly Boy) is constantly being mocked by other children. His parents desperately try to get him to lose weight. Brzucho has a way of releasing negative emotions, but he’s keeping it a secret. Eventually he will share it with his best friend, a girl on whom he has a secret crush.
