The starting point for telling the story of three generations of women (their personal points of view) is the biography of the famous polish poet Maria Konopnicka, who eluded judgement and who was adored by her contemporaries. Maria Konopnicka is a woman of many roles in life – a wife, a mother of eight children, a lover, a celebrity, but above all a poet, a traveller and a great patriot. She is also an author of children's stories. She is an impoverished noblewoman and intellectual, passionate about folk art and tradition. She becomes an object of worship during her lifetime. The funeral of her is attended by 50,000 thousand people, but not a single priest was there.
