The story of a well-known artistic family: legendary painter Zdzislaw Beksinski, his wife Zofia and their son Tomasz, a highly-praised music critic and translator. Their lives were far from being usual.

This film brings a half-century of Poland history through the eyes of a doctor. The movie timing is not linear whats brings a screenplay freshness through the characters lives. The main one, doctor Michaliny Wislockiej spent her life trying to publish a book on female orgasm. For doing so, she received a lot of support from her female patients to publish it. But, the power relations between the church and the communist regime in Poland prevented the book to be released and the empowering of such a revolutionary doctor. The screenplay shows two separated and interconnected stories. The first one is about how to release a book on female sexual pleasure in the Eastern country communist regime. The second one tells us about the loves stories and sexual adventures where Michaliny was the protagonist. As she said in the book opening: "A blind can´t write about colors". Great film!
