Poles are used to Germans looking for places where their ancestors used to live, both in Szczecin and other locations east from the Oder. Surprisingly, Marek Brzeziński might be the only Pole looking for places connected with his past on the western side of the Oder. Wandering through the West Pomeranian Voivodeship and Brandenburg he is amazed to discover how many nationalities have exerted and are still exerting influence on how we live today. The film captures the unique process of a new community being born on the Polish-German borderland.
