Modern-day Silesia. Ariel is a 25-year-old male whose entire life boils down to his beloved football team and his dog. For Karolina - a 20-year-old girl raising a child by herself - the career of a cheerleader in one of Silesian football clubs is an illusory chance for a better life. When these two people meet each other it leads to a clash of seemingly different desires, both rooted in solitude.
