A cynical prosecutor (Janusz Gajos) and his anorectic daughter (Justyna Suwala) try to find their feet — each in their own unique way — after the tragic death of a person dear to them. Olga believes that her father is the only one to blame for the death of her mother and for her own life situation. One day, when Anna (Maja Ostaszewska) — Olga's therapist known for using unconventional methods of treatment — informs them that the late mother has contacted her from the other world to convey a message, they will be forced to redefine what they really think about life and death.
