Year 1993. A summer morning in Tychy, Silesia. Rysiek Riedel, the front man of Dżem, sets off with his group on a concert to Warsaw. It’s a special day and a special show in the life of this 37-year-old singer. Biography of the legendary Dżem leader. The story about an attempt to run away from the grim reality of the PRL into the world of music and then, unfortunately, drugs. The portrait of a charismatic artist in a dead and deadly end.
