It tells the story of everyday life of two soldiers who have become permanently disabled during their mission in Afghanistan. After losing his arm, 27-year-old Tomek, now an orphan proves himself his own worth on a daily basis, treats each day as a challenge, and dreams about taking part in a kick-boxing fight. 45-year-old Franek, who lost his leg, struggles with PTSD and lives only for the sake of his children. The drama of living after the mission is shown from the perspective of the veterans, as well as of Franek’s wife who holds up thanks to the love for her husband.
