The author of the film is Zbigniew Hassa. Since the age of 14, he had worked as an electrician in Warsaw Trams (then MZK). When his daughters, Joanna and Katarzyna, were born, he decided to start filming events from the life of the family. 

An account of a holiday trip to Szklarska Poręba. The film shows Irena and Zbigniew Hassa, their daughters, Joanna and Katarzyna. Open-air shots. Joasia climbs the rocks. Sitting on the wall, Irena and her both daughters eat sandwiches. Joasia fools around in front of the camera. Irena and her daughters watch the waterfall from behind the fence. A shot of the waterfall. Later they walk along a footbridge between high rocks, among other tourists. They stand on a platform from which you can watch the waterfall. When they return, they are overtaken by a nun. Irena with her daughters on a footbridge among the rocks. Joasia walks as if she was dancing. A crowd of tourists in a clearing among the mountains.
