Jacek loves heavy metal and his dog. He is outsider, but not a stranger in small community. But then his life is thrown badly off course by a terrible accident at work that completely disfigures him. Eagerly followed by the Polish media, Jacek becomes the first person in the country to receive a face transplant. He may be celebrated as a national hero and martyr, but he no longer recognizes himself in the mirror. What he desires most is just to have his simple life back.
