Synopsis:

Young athlete Kuba lives with his mother and girlfriend Sylwia; he spends a lot of time training and preparing for his swimming competitions. At a gallery opening, which he reluctantly attends with Sylwia one evening, he meets Michał, a guy of similar age. While Michał is aware of his homosexual orientation, Kuba, until now experiencing a relatively satisfactory relationship with Sylwia, is still finding out who he is. A fragile bond gradually forms between them, yet unfavourable circumstances begin to complicate matters....
