The narrator of the story is named Staszek, a ten-year-old boy raised in the city, but sent to school in Popielawy, the village where his grandparents live. In his diary Staszek writes a story of an old blacksmith family - the Andryszeks. One of its senior members, Jozef Andryszek, invented a cinematic machine used to screen sequences of hand painted movie stills. But he only got to see it work once before he died during the January Uprising. Now the sixth of the generation named Szustek wants to reconstruct the device, but his father disapproves and blames the machine for his family's suffering. He wants a better life for his son...
