Tomasz, a doctor and atheist, is diagnosed with cancer. His ex-wife offers him the money for treatment in Paris but his lung cancer is past operating stage. Facing imminent death, he questions the beliefs he has held all his life and starts to experiment with both his own life and those of others.
The final film—which swept the Polish Film Awards—in our Krzysztof Zanussi retrospective brings us to the post-Communist era of Poland today. An eloquent drama about the quest for spiritual harmony while facing death, it asks vital questions about how to accept the world as it changes around you.
