Mateusz and his grandfather decide, one wintry day in Krakow, Poland, to begin the creation of a traditional Christmas crib (a manger scene set in a model based on one or more of Krakow's historic buildings). The boy is the artist and works on the design, while Grandpa focuses on the model construction. Mateusz abandons the project after Grandpa's unexpected death. Grandma's wishes and Grandpa's words of, "Always finish what you begin" rekindle the construction and completion of the award winning Christmas Crib.
