Saga of the family of Zdzisław Beksiński – Polish surrealist painter famous for the eerie post-apocalyptic works. 
The film follows the family for over 28 years since their move from the province into a block of flats in Warsaw in 1977, partly by recreating their enormous archive of eccentric home videos. As the parents try to prevent their son from hurting himself, their life is defined by painting, a series of near-death experiences, funerals and changing trends in dance music.
