The film is a story dedicated to the Old Town in Bydgoszcz and the events which have taken place there over the course of the last hundred years. Simultaneously, it is an interesting attempt at presenting the history of the city per se, sifted through the perspective of the Old Town, seen as its urban and historic “heart.”
The film story about the Old Town and Bydgoszcz itself starts at the end of the 19th Century and during the rule of Prussians. Former residents of the city talk to the film Director about episodes from their lives related to the Old Town in Bydgoszcz.
