The story is set in Warsaw in 2030 and follows Adam, whose memory has been wiped-out by the secret service. He gets a job as a janitor and falls in love with a girl from a higher social class or “zone”. During his work he finds an old radio from the 50’s and discovers that it allows him to travel to the past.
“I wanted to play with genres, but despite the sci-fi tone the film is first and foremost a story about love. Films about love, especially the ones with a bit of humor, are working very well in hard times”, director Bodo Kox told FNE.
