An intimate portrayal of Zygmunt Bauman, one of the most important contemporary sociologists. The film is composed of private conversations with the protagonist, and statements from his daughters, with family history in the background. In this documentary, divided into four parts – “Culture,” “Europe,” “The world,” “Himself” – the protagonist, known for his reluctance towards confessions, shares his personal thoughts on culture, his own past, and life in the postmodern world. The film was made for the European Culture Congress (8-11 September 2011 in Wrocław) as a part of the Cultural Program of the Polish EU Presidency  2011.
