Vika repeats that age is just a number and inspires others to live life to the fullest. 

84-year-old DJ Vika is a star of Warsaw night clubs. Charismatic and colourful she refuses to grow old, repeating that age is not just a number. But when her health suddenly begins to deteriorate, Vika can no longer deny the passing of time. Will she find meaning in sharing the joy of life with other seniors by encouraging them to live their lives to the fullest?
The film is a bittersweet portrait of a woman who intends to celebrate life to the very end, a true inspiration both for the silver generation and our future selves.
