Alfons is a painter and eternal dreamer. Mieczyslaw is a scientist with a deep pragmatic streak. Together, they form an inseparable odd couple of elderly brothers who have lived together in rural Poland for many decades. In the 1940s, they escaped a Stalinist labor camp together, and through many squabbles and triumphs they somehow have never escaped from each other.
