An unemployed rapper has his mother and girlfriend convinced that he’s working on his debut album. However, he regularly forgets about finding background music, preferring to start an affair with an unhappily married woman addicted to antidepressants. This provocative social drama set to the rhythm of a hip-hop musical preserves the verse language of Dorota Maslowska’s book while relentlessly exposing the dark side of Polish society, which not even a rapping Jesus Christ can save.
