The story begins when Krzysiek’s “Biuro Rzeczy Osobistych” theater (created by intellectually disabled actors) wins the festival. The award sponsored by the professional theater is the possibility of staging the performance. Great joy, great opportunity, great expectations. Krzysiek and his actors are currently working on a new play, Greek Zorba. It would be great to put her on a real stage. It turns out, however, that when the theater director offers them cooperation, he sets certain conditions. When the star – Wiki – appears, Krzysiek’s actors are charmed by her charisma. Time pressure, fascination with Wiki … The premiere has to take place, but will Krzysiek be proud of it?
