SYNOPSIS

Father Paleczny, a monk who devoted his life to helping the homeless, came up with an idea of building a huge yacht that would take him and his charges around the world.  He died in 2009, but his last will remained valid so a group of his Warsaw friends took on the ambitious challenge of completing his boatbuilding project.  It is a task that requires coordinating the work of many people and consequently it requires sobriety.  One of the film’s characters is a welder named Slawek.  Will he be able to master his alcoholism and finish the boat?
