It is a story about Ewelina, a 20-year-old girl, who decided to play in a porn movie, together with her husband. The orgasm she experiences during shooting, the reaction of her husband and experiences of other women in the business will redefine her life, in its entirety... Ewelina and Piotr got married just a couple of months ago. They have a small baby and go through never-ending financial problems — just as many other young couples. Piotr has no permanent job and no idea how to support his family. When talking to their friends, they find out that acting in a porn movie is an easy and quite pleasant way of making quick cash. Ewelina and Piotr agree that this will be their only episode in such a film. The couple goes to Warsaw to make the bold plan come true. Having stepped into the world of porn films, the young and timid couple trigger a chain of events that will permanently change their relations and shift moral limits.
