It is the last days of the summer holidays. A grandfather, who works in the Bieszczady Mountains, awaits the arrival of his grandson. Surrounded by wild nature they try to reach an understanding of each other. The camera keenly and poetically observes, with slow and subtle pace, their developing relationship to one another and to the world that envelopes them.
