Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
Rafal (Daniel Olbrychski) is a stage actor who will take work wherever he can find it. In this case, it has brought him to a mining town in Polish Silesia. He also finds a woman wherever he goes: his easygoing charm has landed him with a married mistress. Backstages, a young music student comes to visit him. Rafal assumes that he will be able to bed her quite easily, but Julia (Maria Seweryn) is not an easy conquest. Quite out of character for him, he has fallen deeply in love with the young virgin, but his chances with her grow slim indeed when she works up the courage to visit him late at night and finds him in the company of his married mistress.
