After leaving prison, Mariusz and his son attempt to adapt to reality, mixing the hardships of everyday life with their habits from prison. Contrary to popular belief, their relationship is filled with love and self-reflection. The sensitivity of the protagonists contrasts with the soulless reality that leaves a scar on former prisoners, excluding them from healthy functioning in society.
