The film title alludes to a traditional Polish mourning song whose new arrangement was included on the album ‘Rzeczy ostatnie’ recorded by the band Polskie Znaki. The project aimed to dust off folk music, which for centuries had put people at ease with regard to death before it became a taboo subject in modern culture. A story about the creation of this album becomes a poem about passing and death. The protagonists help others to pass away and to experience bereavement. They are accompanied by village singers, professional musicians and pop stars. Life has added an unexpected epilogue to this story.
