‘Kasia Cichopek has bought a potty’ - Polish paparazzi wait for hours to take a photo illustrating this sensational news; they wait near shops, in streets or by the celebrities’ homes. The film documents the life of a Polish paparazzo who, just like his Western colleagues, follows the rich and the famous, hunting for sensation. But unlike those in Los Angeles, Polish celebrities lead boring lives. That is why the paparazzo, tempted by big money, dumps Kasia Cichopek’s potty and decides to play for really high stakes.

For the boy, this is an excellent opportunity to find out about the arcana of traditional photography. For both - an opportunity to experience a beautiful friendship.
