Kidnapped on her way to school and locked in a five-square-metre basement, Alicja manages to escape her abductor seven years later. We meet the young woman as she is trying to start a new life. Alicja's shocking story is soon exploited by the mass media. She falls into the hands of an enterprising agent, signs a book deal, and does TV and press interviews. Even her parents try to profit from their daughter's tragedy, claiming that they, too, are victims of her kidnapping. A new acquaintance seeming to offer selfless friendship also turns out to want only a share of her fame. As a result, Alicja falls into depression. She does not understand the world she has returned to after regaining her freedom. She comes to realise that her loved ones are jealous of the tragedy that has, paradoxically, given her money and fame – the only apparent measures of happiness in the world around her.
