A film about the colorful everyday lives of a group of mentally handicapped people. Kamil wants to have a lift license and learn to operate a lift by himself. Michal tries to make his dreams come true every day by trying to create as much cleaning work as possible, but the truth is that his passion is horses. He dreams to go to them. Marek’s television has bad reception, so he wants a new antenna. Witek is a lazy boy, and after trying out different jobs, becomes a porter because it doesn’t demand much. The film follows the group as they prepare to put on a production of “The Tale of the Goldfish”, an adaptation of a work by Alexander Pushkin. They take part in the rehearsals for the play, which will be performed in the theatre in Krakow, Poland. This is a story about simple dreams that may come true.
