The author of the film is Bohdan Kowalski, who works as a Polish language teacher by day. His passions were travelling, film and photography. He was also co-founder of the Ińsko Film Summer, the University of the Third Age and the Film Discussion Club in Stargard. 

Film shot in Stargard on the Housing Estate Zachód. A seweral-year-old girl is walking in front of a block of flats with two women. The child is running, making faces to the camera and sitting behind the wheel of a Fiat 126p, the so-called “Maluch”. The family members are talking to a man leaning out of the block’s balcony, who after a while comes out of the cage and joins the people standing by the car.
