The year is 1952. In the middle of the capital, the foundations of the Palace of Culture are being raised. Sabina has just turned thirty and her mother is trying to find her a husband. Her grandmother has rated the candidates yet Sabina isn’t interested in any of them. One day in dramatic circumstances, she meets Bronislaw, a young man with the looks of a peasant movie star. The man is vulgar yet Sabina falls for him… His presence begins a series of surprising events that will change the lives of the three ladies.
