This film tells the story of Wrocaw (Breslau) seen by the eyes of the first inhabitants resettled there in the post-war period between 1945-1948. Their stories reveal not only their individual motives for moving there, but they also give an explanation of the broader, underlying social phenomenon of this mass influx of the population into Wrocaw. The reasons were manifold: ordinary curiosity, government orders, and attempts to escape and conceal the wartime past.

Film opowiada historie Wroclawia w powojennym okresie, w latach 1945 - 1948, widziana oczami pierwszych mieszkancow miasta. Ich osobiste historie odslaniaja nie tylko indywidualne motywy przyjazdu, ale sa takze wyjasnieniem szerszego spolecznego zjawiska - masowego naplywu ludnosci do Wroclawia. Powody byly roznorakie: od zwyklej ciekawosci, poprzez panstwowe nakazy, po probe ucieczki i ukrycia wojennej przeszlosci.
