The film title refers to the initials used by Father Adam Boniecki to sign his articles in "Tygodnik Powszechny". This weekly is the only place where he can publish after a ban was imposed on him by the Catholic Church leaders. Since then the priest has been even more active participating in over 200 meetings with his readers every year. The film is an intimate portrait of a man on the road. It shows a priest, aged 85, who can always find time for a meaningful conversation and, simultaneously, remains torn between his faith and concern about the condition of the contemporary Church, in particular in Poland.
