After leaving the army, Andrzej Leszczy (Jerzy Skolimowski) drifts from town to town, taking part in boxing matches. When he arrives for his next match, he discovers that an old university friend, Teresa (Aleksandra Zawieruszanka), is working in the local factory. Under each others’ spell, the two of them must face up to the moral dilemmas confronting their personal and professional lives. Shot in black-and-white and accompanied by an improvised jazz score from Andrzej Trzaskowski, Jerzy Skolimowski’s sophomore feature is stylistically reminiscent of the French New Wave, while telling a distinctly Polish story.
