SYNOPSIS:

"I made a decision to live, sing and tour. I have the strength of the highlander and there is nothing in this world that could possibly break me." This is a statement of the most famous Polish jazz singer, Urszula Dudziak, who did not surrender to the recently diagnosed breast cancer. She immediately decided to amputate her breast because -as she claims - she has still plenty to do in life. Dudziak takes the audience on a tour through her life. She talks about her first days in America, first record deal, loves, and passions, which she has got at least a few. One of them is tennis, which allows her to keep her fitness despite the disease and 65 years of age. The second one that she enters slowly and carefully is the Polish political world that is missing a Women Party build out of wise, sensitive, strong and mature women.
