The film tells a fictitious story of an ambitious band from Pruszcz Gdański that is struggling to release their debut album and go on a promotional tour. They are unexpectedly aided by Czesław Skandal (Grzegorz Halama), a bailiff from Tczew, who is bored with his job and decides to become the manager of the quartet. The twists and turns of the band, their driver Stan Gudeyko and manager Skandal are filmed in a quasi-documentary form, which becomes a humorous accusation of Polish “show-business”. The lively plot is spiced up by bawdy songs sung by the main protagonists: vocalist Jerzy Bydgoszcz (Tymon Tymański), drummer Zbigniew Gruz (Filip Gałązka), Dudek Maszczyk (Arek Jakubik), Gudeyko, and Skandal.
Polish Shit is a project with a history. The script written by Tymon Tymański is partly based on the painful experiences collected during concert tours of The Transistors, Miłość, and Kury, as well as on anecdotes told by people from the music industry.
