The year is 1999. Sebastian is a rebellious primary school student with no desire to learn. Under the threat of not making it to the next class, his history teacher gives him homework that will ultimately change his life.

Today, Sebastian is over thirty years old and is passionate about the events that took place during World War II in Wroclaw. He discovers the city's forgotten monuments after the war and draws an unusual map that shows the location of these places. He takes a souvenir from each site.

One of the last monuments he goes to is Fort no. 6 in Polanowice. He finds this place fascinating. In the main bunker, Sebastian finds an old notebook. Unexpectedly, a teenager appears on his way, who is by no means as enthusiastic about the Fort as he is. They do not like each other from the very beginning. The situation is changed by the content of the notebook, whose words take the action of the film into the past, reflecting the dramatic story of the last days of the lives of the German soldiers who were stationed at the Fort during World War II. Transferred to the set of one of the last battles fought under the walls of the city of Breslau between the troops of the Wehrmacht and the USSR, the relationship between the contemporary protagonists changes dramatically.

Their reunion will seal the fate and surprising ending of the film.
