Mikołaj, an oceanography student, arrives to do his internship at the Marine Station in Hel. Under the watchful eye of his boss, Professor Krzysztof Skóra, he cares for a newborn seal. A male, he is given the name of Hel.
Mikołaj teaches him how adapt to life in the wild. Before he can be released into the Baltic, Hel has to learn how to live with the herd, find his own food and, most important of all, how to avoid contact with humans. And what of that, as pupil and teacher begin to be bound by a ‘dangerous’ thread of friendship…?
