The adaptation of a novel by Jerzy Andrzejewski captures a particular stage of the complicated history of post-war Poland. It is a continuous fight on several fronts. Not a fight against occupation anymore, but a fight against own people. The protagonists are two brave young men confident that they are fighting for their motherland. However, they don’t really know their “enemy” – it is enough that their commander marks the enemy and they comply. They are indifferent towards the fact that on the very first day of peace they kill two innocents – and they don’t even know why they are supposed to kill a regional secretary of a working party. Of the two, only Maciek thinks about his future days, even if it’s only for a fleeting moment – he yearns after human happiness, after love. But the war is not yet over for him and his friends. What is more, he eventually becomes one of its victims as well.
