The author of the film is Jarosław Krajewski (born in 1952 in Poznań). As a teenager, he received his first camera as a gift from his parents. Since then, he has filmed important events and family life: weddings, holiday trips to the Powidz area, as well as his daughters, Paula and Zuzanna, growing up. Jarosław was interested in journalism. In his youth, he belonged to the Club of Youth Journalists (KDM), later he worked, among others, in the office and the company newspaper in a furniture factory and as a tour guide in Europe. He currently lives in Edinburgh, Scotland.

The film was made during a winter trip of the Youth Journalists Club (KDM) to Błażejewo. Participants of the trip walk around the snowy resort, fool around and smoke cigarettes. Some wave at the camera or laugh, cover the lens with their hands. A sign at the entrance of the holiday resort of the Teofil Kowalski Association of State Enterprises of Agricultural Economy in Błażejewko. While walking around the area, the group checks the bus timetable that hangs at the bus stop. On the way back to the resort, they throw snowballs. Alicja leaves the cottage and walks towards Jarosław and waves at the camera. Friends continue their walk around the resort and the beach by Lake Bnińskie, fool around in the snow and throw snowballs at hanging icicles.
