An evening in Łódź. Two friends, Maciej and Peter, are having a walk, conversing about themselves. Both were left at a very young age by their fathers, which is really painful. They decide to make a film about it. Maciej is planning to meet his dad and confront him with their past.  During the filming the young men realize that the plans to involve Maciej´s father in their project have failed. Peter recalls his own father, thus both stories entwine. The pain is shared, and at the end of the day there are no fathers, only friendship between the two lost kids.
