Franek is a renowned hair stylist. After many years he returns to his hometown to attend his mother's funeral. A silesian belief states that whoever pulls a deadman's finger will never fear anything in his life. Franek still believes it to be true. The film was inspired by Marcel Proust's novel "Swann's Way".
