Jan Zawada is a well educated doctor who lives in a state of well-being and comfort. He has a wife Monika, son Maciek, a lovely house near the woods, and a job which he hates. Monika, a confident and brave woman, makes a career in a big company and spends all her time at work. She and her husband don’t even talk to each other. Janusz, Jan’s brother, is a psychiatrist and lives next door with his wife Anna. He is envious of everything Jan and Monika possess. Jan realizes that the life he leads makes him very unhappy. One day Monika comes home and finds a video cassette. She learns about Jan’s decision which soon causes a lot of amazing and funny situations which will finally lead to an unexpected and surprising end.
