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.

New Year’s Eve party. Guests sit at the table and drink champagne. In the background, we can see the TV on. The amused daughters of Jarosław, Paula and Zuzanna, run around the apartment. The girls dance and show off in front of the gathered guests. Albin, Jarosław’s father, fools around in front of the camera. Kazimiera, Jarosław’s mother, plays with her granddaughter and knits with her daughter-in-law. The girls make faces at the camera and run around the couch.
