After twenty years in America, Franciszek ‘Franek’ Kalina is coming back home to Poland to check out his younger brother Józef ‘Józek’ who now lives alone in their old countryside family farmhouse–abandoned by his wife and kids that have fled to America.
Józek is in a bad situation. Some of the villagers are out to get him because he allegedly vandalized some road near the woods. Why did Józek do that? The explanation is quite bizzare: because the road is paved by some old gravestones, and now Józek is collecting them. Dug them from nearby areas, bought them from his neighbors if necessary. And the gravestones are turned out to be old Jewish gravestones. People say some things are better left buried. Maybe Józek, and later also Franek himself, should know better before ignoring those seemingly wise words. But should they just let bad things be buried and forgotten forever, and act like nothing ever happened?
