Upon learning of her father’s death in Ireland, the 17-year-old daughter travels from Poland to retrieve his remains. She has few memories of her father, who has been working abroad since her childhood. She only hopes to get the money he’d promised her to buy a car. However, when she arrives in Ireland, the company refuses to pay compensation. Enraged at the unfair situation, she begins to learn about her father’s life as an immigrant worker. Her trip turns into a journey of understanding her father and learning to face the world.
