After the death of their father, two brothers (Jerzy Stuhr and Zbigniew Zamachowski) inherit his stamp collection. They pay little attention to the stamps at first, but soon discover the enormous value of the collection, and begin a deep dive into the world of philately. Their interests gradually balloon to pathological proportions. The older brother goes so far as to sacrifice a kidney to obtain the missing item in a rare series of stamps. As he lies on the operating table and his brother awaits the results of the operation, burglars steal the entire collection.
