It is a first film in which Jurek Owsiak – the creator of the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity – talks honestly about how the idea to establish the Orchestra came up, and what the difficult beginnings looked like. He also recalls the whole history of 30 years of the Great Orchestra without avoiding such hard topics as brutal hate he faced, or the death of the president of Gdańsk – Paweł Adamowicz, after which Jurek resigned temporarily.
The documentary about the creator of the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity shows his change – from a carefree hippie to the leader of the great civic movement, and one of the most important symbols of free Poland. He tells the story behind moving the idea of Woodstock Festival to Poland which became one the biggest music festivals in Europe.
