Marcin is coming up for thirty. He lives in a small town not far from Krakow and referees football matches in the lowest league. He wants a change, though. He's had enough of the perpetual stress that coming into contact with the fans and the players causes. Then there's his mother, who is waiting for him to make some concrete life decisions and pressurising him to do so. So Marcin is trying to find a better job and a girlfriend.
