Short documentary about Rafał: the player, coach and founder of an amateur lacrosse team – The Corsairs. Main character has to divide his time between his sport passion and his daughter – Tosia – who he takes care of in turns with his ex-wife. Rafał stands at the crossroads. On one hand, he knows that his daughter is the most important and on the other hand, he’s just incapable of giving up Corsairs even though his colleagues are immature and don’t put their hearts into the sport.
