After moving to Podlasie, psychologist Julia (Maja Ostaszewska) becomes an involuntary witness and participant of dramatic events on the Polish-Belarusian border. Aware of the risks and legal consequences, she joins a group of activists helping refugees camping in the forests in the zone covered by the state of emergency. At the same time, a Syrian family fleeing the civil war and their Afghan teacher, not knowing that they are tools of political fraud by the Belarusian authorities, are trying to get to the borders of the European Union. In Poland, fate will bring them together with Julia and the young border guard Jan (Tomasz Wlosok). The events taking place around them will force them all to ask themselves anew the question - what is humanity?
