To the 12 year old Tomek his father Alek has absolutely no flaws. He just came back from a long emigrant stay in the US and wants to start a new life in the new post-communist Poland. Unfortunately, he is an alcoholic and starts to drink again shortly after his return. Tomek and his mother Helena have to struggle and try to do everything to stop Alek from drinking. As a result they both become co-dependent alcoholics which severely affects their everyday life. Tomek starts to have difficulties at school. He gradually begins to understand the drama of his father’s alcoholism and in the moment of desperation he wants his father to end his life by commiting suicide. It is all up to Alek – his courage and love for his son to either make this irreversible decision or to try and fight for the good of the entire family.
