A few days before the ceremony of First Communion, Mula (Anna Krotoska), Michał (Rafał Cieluch), and their small daughter Nina, have a strange visitor.

The church ceremony is at hand, while the atmosphere between the sisters is becoming tense. Will Kaja try to win her daughter back? There is a different, more important reason for Kaja to return, as we will soon find out...
