Although he has already turned 30, Wojtek still believes in the legend of a giant fish that lives in a nearby lake. He spends his entire time trying to catch it. His overprotective mother, Wanda, ignores that completely. On the day of her son’s birthday, she decides to make his life right: find him a girlfriend, buy a flat and make him a marketing specialist, in her own company that manufactures work clothes. It is a fairy-tale story about the inability to adapt, dreams and sick love.
