An allegorical portrait of Jerzy Bereś – sculptor and performer, a member of the legendary Krakow Group, a man of a great personality and also the ‘outsider’ of Polish art scene. The film consists of three interwoven themes – narrative parable about a man penetrating the forests in search of a perfect wood for his sculpture, reconstructions of Bereś manifestations from 1975 and fragments of the last interview with the artist held in 2012.
