A glorious future is foretold for the king’s orphaned son Gotfryd. But before that can happen, the young man must learn poverty, experience abuse and exile. 

Gotfryd wins the hand of his beloved, defends his homeland, and tricks the devil himself. Can he win back the throne? The path he follows is full of adventures and dangers. In this initiation, while overcoming evil the hero tastes contempt and victory. The story of the indomitable knight is recounted in the theatre by actors animating wooden figures—sculptures designed by Józef Wilkoń.
