This documentary shows searching for happiness in harsh conditions. The main characters are two men, who call themselves one good person. This nickname means that only together they have all the senses and abilities of one healthy person. In fact, Franek is intellectually challenged and acts as hands and legs, while Andrzej barely moves and acts as the brain. They live together and, when they combine their abilities, they are relatively self-sufficient. For now, their biggest problem is that they do not have got female companions. They actively look for wives but have not succeeded so far. Years ago they agreed that Franek would not leave Andrzej unless he gets married first. Andrzej and Franek agreed to become the main characters of a documentary as they want others to understand their life and perhaps learn something and make their conclusions. Their idea worked well as the movie is impressive and thought-provoking.
