Krycha is a strong woman who runs a farm in a remote corner of the Polish mountains. Her unusual calmness is disturbed by the arrival of young filmmakers. The director tries to convince the woman that her ordinary life is worth a movie. In return, Krycha invites the filmmakers to join her in a seemingly simple physical work. Mutual expectations transform into an extraordinary bond. "Documentary film" collides the two worlds that interpenetrate and pose a question about the purpose, about what we have and what we miss.
