A Dominican, Father Jan Gora, is the main character in this play. He is a living legend, a priest hypnotizing crowds, tireless organizer associated by thousands in Poland with the youth meetings on Lednicki Fields near Poznan, and the center of youth and students chaplaincy on Jamna Mountain near Tarnow. Jan Gora, Doctor of theology, is an influential personality in the religious life of the Poles. He is a living legend, considered by some almost a saint endowed with charisma, an excellent organizer and host. But is Father Gora who he is believed to be? What is behind all this media hype? What really happens in his center, the property of Dominican monastery in Poznan?
A couple of young reporters are given the task of producing a program about Father Gora. Gathering the material about their hero, they slowly begin to discover the truth about themselves.
