Karolina, a young Polish woman, sets off on a journey through Volhynia, where her family comes from. Her relatives were murdered in the so-called Volhynian massacre in 1943. This trauma constantly hurts. Karolina wanders on foot, accompanied by a Ukrainian cameraman Oleksandr. They talk with the inhabitants of Volhynia about past events.

It is a film about crumbs of goodness, about memory and coming to terms with one's own past. It is the voice of the young generation in the process of Polish-Ukrainian reconciliation.
