Pawel is a bright and lovable boy. His father treats him like an equal and encourages him to solve everyday problems in a scientific manner.

Pawel and his father consult the computer over whether the local pond is covered with ice thick enough to skate upon. On the day the computer calculates that the ice is safe, fate decides otherwise.
