Leon, the 40-year-old former soldier who is an alcoholic now, gets a job as a bodyguard. His duty is to take care of one of the Mafia leader's daughters. His problems begin when he falls in love with the 16-year-old girl.
It's a story of three generations of Miauczynski-family, told from the perspective of the second and third male. The reasons for the alcoholism of the first Miauczynski are disregarded - the director instead concentrates on the alcoholism of Adam (2nd) and the influence it has on his son Sylwek (also on Adam's wife and mother). The conclusions are obvious but along the way the viewer receives an excellent examination of social relations in the middle and lower class in Poland - Koterski shows the extent to which alcoholism has been institutionalized in Poland as one of the reasons why this problem hasn't been solved. Great acting by Chyra, not so much by Kondrat. The rest of the cast is good.
