After 80 years of exile, two brothers come back to Poland from Kazakhstan. Their aim is to find their place in the new world. They face obstacles caused by their different characters. One of them is a painter and a dreamer, the other one a pragmatic engineer. They are as different as ink and water, and as inseparable as a flower from its stem. They want to rebuild their lives despite the dramatic events that fate sends them, when their house, containing several thousand paintings, burns down and when one brother has the other brother sent to a center for elderly people. The race against time begins now. Will they be fast enough?
