Jacek has not seen his son in 18 years. Unexpectedly, the son visits his father in the countryside.

The pedantic Włodek has been running a banquet house for years. He organises all kinds of events – from proms to retirement parties. A small mistake makes Włodek in charge of a wedding reception and a memorial service, both taking place at the same time and inside the same building. Włodek has to make sure that the gatherings remain unaware of each other.
