An aging relative of the family, a former star ballerina, comes to Warsaw for the wedding with her daughter. The two do not get along well. The party begins to degenerate in the church when the bride walks off with the groom in angry pursuit. The rest retire to the villa to celebrate anyway. They start with naked party in the sauna.
