Remik is a young father, in his late twenties, struggling with an alcohol use disorder that accounts for the break-up of his relationship with Magda that in turn led to limiting contacts with his son. The man also lost his job and consequently had to move in with his mother. Magda is a beautiful, self-assured girl, fond of audacious outfits. She practices pole dance as a hobby, and spends most of her free time on social media. In the face of his parenting and partnering failure Remik decides to pull himself together and regain what he lost. In order to prove his value to himself and others he takes up a job as a construction worker and starts working hard. He does that mostly for his son Franek. He documents his alteration through a YouTube channel that he set up and calledThe Marble Man.
