Somewhere in Europe, somewhere in Poland lives Pawel - a simple man working on a small river ferry close to his village. He spends most of his day taking the villagers to the other side of the river. Every day looks the same, but one day he notices somebody traversing the river by swimming. This person is Mohammad, an immigrant from Palestine. There is finally somebody Pawel can talk to.
