Tadeusz Boy-Zelenski, Witkacy, Joseph Conrad and Bronislaw Malinowski, four leading figures among the Zakopane bohemians, wake up after an all-night drunken party. Their hangover headaches are killing them, none of them remembers anything, and finding the corpse of a male stranger on the floor doesn't help.

Tadeusz Boy-Żeleński (T. Kot), Witkacy (M. Dorociński), Joseph Conrad (A. Seweryn) and Bronisław Malinowski (W. Mecwaldowski), four celebrities of the Zakopane bohemia wake up after a heavily drunk, all-night party. Their heads are bursting with a hangover, no one remembers anything, and the situation is not improved by the corpse of an unknown man found on the floor. In addition, the law enforcement officers are knocking on the door of the house, and this is only the beginning of the trouble. A race against time begins, in which the four men must free themselves not only from suspicions, but also from equally dangerous rumors and solve the mystery of a mysterious death as quickly as possible. Soon, thanks to these brilliant and risk-loving gentlemen, the vibrant cultural life of Zakopane will become the scene of a great intrigue involving gangsters, artists and politicians, including Zofia Nałkowska (Polish writer) and Józef Piłsudski (head of state). Lenin himself, who just came to Poronin, will also stand in the way of those four men.
