39-year-old bachelor Fazi lives alone in a studio flat on the outskirts of a Silesian city. For years now, he’s been supported by his mother who gives him half of her monthly pension. One day, though, a terrible thing happens: the mailman delivering pensions runs away with the money. The mother can’t give Fazi the usual sum. What’s more, she needs to leave for a few-week stay in a sanatorium immediately. Fazi is left with a piece of bread and ketchup in a fridge and two zlotys in a pocket. Will he survive in the brutal world where everyone struggles for existence? Governed by its own rules, it looks nothing like his mother’s care.
