Michal has got what he's always dreamt of: his own company, a beautiful wife named Magda, a newborn son. He chooses a good old friend, Janek, to be the godfather of his child. This is just the beginning of Michal's secret plan as soon he asks his friend to take an interest in his wife. At the beginning the plan works out, but it becomes increasingly difficult for Michal to come to terms with it. He knows his deeply hidden past will inevitably come back to him, and Janek will have to make a life-changing decision. Written by Anonymous
