In the not so distant dystopian future, Adam escapes from the poor part of Warsaw to the New City. With the help of a secret society, Adam gets a flat in an old building and finds a job as a cleaner. He falls in love with Goria, a beautiful employee in the HR department, but she doesn’t take him seriously.
In his flat, Adam finds a radio from the 1950s that broadcasts beautiful music from the past. The radio also emits Theta waves which facilitate time travel. Adam starts to experiment with the Theta waves, and gets stuck in the past. When he doesn’t show up for work, Goria – realizing that she has her lost true love – tried to find him in the past.
