The Nowik family is cooped up with the parents-in-law in a two-room apartment. One day, thanks to a producer of bouillon cubes, they win a fully furnished suite in a luxurious high-rise downtown in Warsaw. Their pipe dreams of the life of Reilly came true and trigger a chain of real troubles for these fledgling rich, whose former problems pole beside the 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 while Mr. Nowik works as a ticket collector. 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 they look up to its residents and a club of Fortune Darlings to whom the Nowiks try to belong at any price. The past is not so easy to erase and it brings about numerous comic confrontations.
