Jerzy is a respectable writer and a heavy drinker. He falls in love with a young girl and finally feels that he has got the person and the reason to live for. But soon he yields to his addiction. One day Jerzy heads to The Mighty Angel tavern, where he starts his drinking session. He lands in intensive care, and then he is directed to a several-week-long detox, where he meets other patients, who create a colourful array of characters: a film director, a lorry driver, an engineer, a pharmacist, a worker, a hairdresser and others, who tell stories from the times when they were drinking, sometimes funny, sometimes moving. The latest film by Wojtek Smarzowski is a shocking story about addiction and attempts to overcome it – and about love, that saves everything.
