Matys is an outsider who moved from Ukraine to Czechia with his sister in search of a better life. Turns out the situation there is not ideal either. A glimpse of hope comes when Matys manages to get a job in a cottage in the woods. Its owner and the magical surroundings enchant him. The question is how long this feeling of happiness will last.
