Young Emilka moves through present day Warsaw in search of the country's contemporary traditional and folk Music scene. In everyday, sometimes less ordinary situations, about a dozen bands are portrayed in a string of video clips, showing the special energy and passion of the genre. The uniqueness of the particular acts is captured in a special symbolic and abstract cinematic language created by the film's authors, without using words at all.

Featuring Chłopcy Kontra Basia, Kapela Ze Wsi Warszawa, Kompania Prusinowski, Adam Strug, Sutari and many more.
