Political emigration of 80s. People who after the declaration of martial law on December 13, 1981 were accidentally or deliberately in exile. After Round Table negotiations and the election on 4 June 1989 they returned, some immediately, others a little later, and with all enthusiastically joined in the work for the country. The film’s characters talk about why they were in exile, about their life and work, also political. But above all, they talk about the decision to return to the country. If they are satisfied with this choice, what country they liked, and what disappointed them, how they organized new life in professional and personal ways.
