A place in this world

In full lockdown in Poland, a young director captures her grandparents who are searching for a house in the country. They speak about Solidarnosc, communism, freedom and matrimony. The director uses a valuable document in order to challenge her grandparents to speak in front of the camera. They talk about the past and the present, while the film artlessly captures glimpses into their lives.
