On June 21, 1973, Stan Borys sings a song entitled "The Caged Swallow" at the Opole festival, as all of Poland watches the event on television. This includes the whole household at the home of nine-year-old Agnieszka Jaskółka (English: Swallow). But that fateful evening will bring another event - something that will reflect on her life.

It’s the second full-length thesis film in the history of Lodz Film School, after Jerzy Skolimowski’s 1964 film Identification Marks: None.

According to the director, The Caged Swallow is inspired by a true story, read a long time ago in a newspaper - a story of a woman who, after 30 years, guided by a sudden impulse, remembered long-repressed events from her childhood.
