Father Jan Góra was a Dominican, doctor of theology, an academic chaplain in Poznań, preacher, writer, creator and animator in pastoral centres in Jamna, Hermanice and at Lednica lake. The organizer of the annual meetings of young people next to the Fish Gate (Gate of the Third Millennium) at Lednica lake, the founder of the House of John Paul II, spiritual father and friend of many young people, died suddenly. The funeral, which took place on 30th December 2015, gathered crowds of his friends and followers from all over Poland. The Dominican was faithful to the teaching of the Holy Father John Paul II and he based his entire pastoral programme on his pontificate. Father Góra was buried at Pola Lednickie, right next to a 27-ton boulder that symbolizes the 27 years of John Paul II pontificate. The film contains memories and interviews with his friends and closest associates, carried out after Domican's death.
