A son, a father. The first one holds a camera; the second one holds the title ambassador. The camera trembles, the ambassador remains still.

His Excellency, the plenipotentiary Ambassador of the Republic of Poland to the Belgian Crown sacrificed his entire life for his country. His dedication came with a price. He never really had time for his son. His son, however, admires his father, and longs to be like him, but knows he is quite different. This is what happens when he goes to Brussels to try to make up for lost time.
