    Documentary

    The film poses questions related to the nature of improvisation. The protagonist of the film is Mikolaj Trzaska - saxophonist, bass clarinet player, harmonica player and composer. Trzaska is undoubtedly one of the greatest personas of the Polish jazz music scene. His artistic work is a universal theme since it is characterised by a specific to artistic disposition anxiety and ambivalence: relentless search for a self-aware language and losing yourself as the necessary means of immersing yourself in the music element.
