The Nowik family, cooped up with the parents-in-law in a two-room apartment, win a fully furnished suite, in a luxurious high-rise downtown in Warsaw thanks to a producer of bouillon cubes. Their pipe dreams of the life of Reilly having come true trigger a chain of real troubles for these fledgling rich, whose former problems pole beside their new ones. Now their life is lived between the housing project and the high-rise. In the morning, the wife and the daughter leave for a low paid job in the mangling establishment in the project while Mr. Nowik works as a ticket collector. Evenings, however, are spent at the poolside and fitness club of the high-rise. It quickly dawns on them that not only have they changed the place of residence but have also fled their social class. Not to appear a laughing stock, they try to pass for members of the new elites, as enterprising, wealthy, modern wannabes. The high-rise is their paradise on earth and its residents, a club of Fortune darlings, among whom the Nowiks try to belong at any price. The past, however, is not so easy to erase, which brings about comic confrontations.
