Unique, futuristic and, at the same time, Orwellian comedy about time travel and love so strong that it could break any space-time boundaries. Warsaw, year 2030. It seems that Adam’s better tomorrow was yesterday... Struck with amnesia of unknown origin, he has to start all over again. Adam moves house and begins to work for a corporation, where he meets and falls for the attractive Goria. As the romance heats up, the young man finds an old radio in his apartment – a device which broadcasts 1950s programmes. It turns out that the receiver also emits frequencies which make teleportation possible. During one of his travels, Adam gets stuck in 1952.
