The narrator of the film is an artist who, having emigrated to Sweden, left all his sketches in Poland and took up gardening in his new motherland. The story evoked by Agnieszka Polska bears resemblance to the biography of Paweł Freisler, artist active in the 1960s and 1970s in the neoavant-garde circles, who left for Sweden in 1976 and disappeared from the Polish artistic scene.

Polska pays a hypothetical visit to Freisler’s Swedish garden and shows the way how the artist, notorious for spreading legends about his own performances, was able to build a narration related to his own disappearance.
