Music soothes the savage beast! Who said a swashbuckler with the looks of Arnold Schwarzenegger may not fall in love with opera? Krzysztof, who is 19, ends up there by accident, working as a security guard. Moved by the first aria he has heard in his life, he decides to sign up for singing lessons. The clash between what seems two ends of the spectrum: rap and classical music, the gym and the concert hall, is captured by Kamila Chojnacka, the director and scriptwriter, with lightness, humour and, above all, a large dose of fondness for her characters.
