Wilderness in the Bieszczady Mountains, with the nearest shop eight kilometres away. These are the conditions in which Zbyszek who burns charcoal decided to live. He treats hard work as a kind of atonement for his past deeds. Three tar makers who worked with him, including his son, are already dead. The man connects their deaths with his past. His next companion is black Gustaw whose dream is to study medicine. Will he turn out to be the title fourth man?
