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. 

A trip to Kołobrzeg in 1978, to which Jarosław Krajewski’s daughter, Paula, went with her grandparents, Albin and Kazimiera. Genre scenes from a recreational trip, typical for trips to the seaside: rest and fun on the beach, playing in the water and playing in a rowing boat near the pier. We can also see the old Pier in Kołobrzeg, on which Paula walks bravely, watched over by her grandfather, and the adjacent monumental spa sanatorium “Bałtyk”. As it was a trip with a child, it could not go without playing in the sandbox and on the swings or a visit to stables, where Paula had the opportunity to stroke a horse.
