Though she only knows his first name and that he "works in coal", Molly, a young Irish woman, travels to a small Polish town to find the man with whom she'd had a memorable one-night stand several months before. Armed with nothing more than a postcard and her own tenacity, she sets about finding her past lover, despite her landlord's admonishments that all the coal mines closed years ago.
If one bases one's knowledge of Poland on this movie then one would be under the impression that Poland is the grimest place on Earth with people who are rude and have not manners. Thank God it is not the case! Maybe in Walbrzych (where the action takes place) but everywhere else people are friendly, helpful and love visitors! Believe me! I would know - I am from there (NOT Walbrzych) :)
