The hard-hitting and intense story of a 19-year-old, who fights to support the woman in his life and her child, and is forced to enter into a world of evil. Brought up without a father, Wojtek lives in Slask, a run-down mining region, where it is hard to believe in a future. In these run-down, dirty streets, love is even harder to find. Wojtek is in love with an older woman named Katja, a Ukrainian emigrant who has a child. He is ready to do anything to ensure her right to stay in Poland. However, the world of illegal boxing matches, small time gangsters, and debt retrieval has him cornered. The more he fights for a better life, the lower he falls. How much will he have to sacrifice to free himself from the evil that surrounds him? Can he salvage that which is most important?
