Antoni Matuszny, who came from the Beskid village of Laliki, was interested in photography since he was a child. As he recalls, he wanted to save the life of his family and the countryside in the 1970s from oblivion. At the age of thirteen, he bought the first camera, and when he was 24 – the camera of the Soviet Quarz 5.

Film shot in 1986 in Cięcina. A family gets into a car and goes to a cottage being renovated in Matlakówka. The following people are participating in the trip: Antoni with his wife Elżbieta and daughters Paulina and Anna, and Elżbieta’s sister Jadwiga with her parents Elżbieta and Franciszek Wojciuch. After arriving at the site, the family walks around the area and spends time outdoors.
