Trailer

The lives of the four main characters are turned upside down, when a local sports club gets kicked out of the league. Oskar is forced to put on a suit and take a job from a local mafia boss. Oskar’s brother learns the taste of revenge from a mad woman, while Baśka realises that you may know a lot of people, but among them there is just few true friends. A single decision of the main character leads to an avalanche of unexpected events. Oskar's new way of life will get him in real trouble and make him end up naked at a local square, in broad daylight. He will also lose his girlfriend, become the heart's throb of his brother’s girlfriend and, quite unexpectedly, a superhero, in the eyes of some people.

It is a film about passion, honour and living on the roll. However, the true game here is love.
