As the title of this Polish seriocomedy indicates, all Ewa (Barbara Kwiatowska) wants is a good night's sleep. Newly arrived in a medium-sized city, farm girl Ewa shows up too early to set up residence in her school dormitory. With nary a penny to her name, she wanders the streets of the city in the dark of night, hoping to find temporary sleeping quaters. In the course of her ramblings, she meets all manner of eccentric characters, and briefly runs up against provincial bureaucracy when the local constabulary assumes that she's a prostitute. Ewa Chce Spac proved to be a critical and audience favorite at film festivals from Czechoslovakia to San Francisco.
