Two writers traveling by train to Hel tells us the story of a man and a woman. In front of the audience, they try to create a plot of the film script: a simple story about love. So we have a woman (Marta) and a man (Aleks) and a story of their accidental meeting during the first day of the holiday, on the Łódź Kaliska – Hel route. The film begins to be trivial, but it quickly becomes more complicated, because life, film, plot and circumstances become get tangled up in the telling of this seemingly straightforward tale. A sensational debut of Arkadiusz Jakubik as a director.
