Jurek, who is twenty three, lives with his aunt who does her best to provide the boy with everything he may need. Tired by the stability and security of life under constant care, he decides to change his fate. To quiet down his aunt's incessant jabbering he reaches for a hammer. The film, based on the unfinished novel ‘Killing Auntie' by Andrzej Bursa, is a story about the need of deliverance, full of unobtrusive absurd and black humour.
