Leszek Krzeszowiak was a skier (among others a Polish vice-champion in slalom in 1949 in Karpacz), ski coach, academic lecturer, judge, director of the Department of Judges and General Skiing in the Polish Ski Association. He was also passionate about filming sports and important events, not only family events. The pictures were shot with the Czechoslovak Admira 16 mm camera.

This film was recorded on the day of the First Communion of Leszek Krzeszowiak’s daughter, Barbara, and presents genre scenes recorded in the Cracow garden of the Krzeszowiak family, family conversations, posing together for photos, playing with the dog, Pimpuś, and walking down the city streets. Apart from the heroine of the day dressed in a white dress, there is also her sister (Małgorzata), mother (Barbara) and grandparents.
