North-eastern Polish village, surrounded by forests and lakes; with only a few houses, several farm households, and a small baroque church. That’s where the main character – an 11 years old boy spends his last month of summer. He is fascinated by adventure books about the Wild West and craves adventures and experiences. He explores the surroundings, equipped with a cassette recorder and a bow. His innocent adventure suddenly stops being a childish play – what the boy will live through one summer night, will stay for long in his memory.
