It is a story of parents of a cursed soldier, who died in 1946, told from a perspective of their 17-year-old grandson Janek. Department of Security digs up his body four times to make sure that the enemy of the state is truly dead. The mother can't bear the humiliation, she steals away the coffin with the body, forces the husband to travel to Pacławska Calvary to bury their son again. The journey is full of dramatic events. Travellers are joined by Jurgen, a German fugitive from a prisoner-of-war camp. The film, which is written into the dramatic history of post-war Poland, still remains universal in its story - a struggle of two parents to regain their dignity and balance in life after losing their child.
