At the last moment, the fight federation changes this prestigious event into a Freak Fight with the participation of boxer Marek “Pretty Boy” Chmielnicki. Tomek becomes so angered that he makes several bad decisions that ruin his career. To escape from the hustle and bustle of the media, he leaves the city in disgrace. He gets his chance to start a new life when he meets Magda, a doctor, and they fall in love, but black clouds soon gather.
