During preservation works of the Veit Stoss altar in Cracov, a small, yellow boot is found. In order to find out where it came from, one must go back a few centuries. Wawrzek, a little boy from the village of Poręba, has been showing artistic skills since early childhood. His dream is to become an apprentice of Veit Stoss and carve figures in wood, just like his master. After a long journey, Wawrzek finally gets to Cracov, where his first challenge is to face a bandit called Czarny Rafał.
Sylwester Chęciński directed his debut feature film in 1961, after working for a few years as an assistant director and second assistant director.
