The film tells the story of the creative work of Władysław Kozioł, a respected stained glass artist from Toruń. He was born in 1929 in Szczucin near Tarnów. After graduating in 1951, he began to study at the Faculty of Fine Arts of the Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń. His teachers were, among others, Tymon Niesiołowski and Stanisław Borysowski.
