Brothers Jacek and Tomek live in a high-rise, one of many in the concrete housing estate. Tomek suffers from the Savant syndrome and Jack works at home as a webmaster. Usually they are inseparable and only when Jack needs to go for a business meeting he leaves his brother with the repulsive Mrs. Kwiatkowska, their neighbour. The new tenant living opposite the boys is very mysterious and seems to be something of a wild creature. Her names Magda. She seldom leaves her flat, despises people and going out is unbearable for her. One day, Jacek needs to go to another town and asks Magda to stay with his sick brother. This is the beginning of a friendship and at the same time the beginning of their end.
