A father and a son on a trip. They meet to spend some time together after the period when they broke off contacts. But it is not a carefree weekend at a hut in the Bieszczady mountains. The drunk father asks a rhetorical question: “And what, did you think it would be easy?” Building the eponymous dam on a mountain stream may be understood as fighting your own weakness, making joint efforts to overcome bias and mutual grievances. In the pool thus created, they may find expurgation and (temporary) solace.
