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.

An account of a holiday trip near Powidz (in the summer of 1979), an important place for the Krajewski family, where the family spent their annual, monthly holiday for many years. Alicja, the wife of Jarosław Krajewski, sunbathes, lying on a boat. Next to her, there is Paula, her daughter. The panorama of the lake filmed from a floating boat. At the shore, two men stand in the water and fish. Preparing food in the camp, a shared meal. A shot of calamus lying on the ground. Different shots of family and friends at the campsite: a woman prepares drinks, a man sits at the table waving at the camera, others fool around, pretending to drink vodka from a bottle inserted into a wire fish net. A man, who pretended to drink vodka, sails away from the shore of the lake in a boat.
