Synopsis by Dan Pavlides
This three-part story from Poland consists of "Divorce-Polish Style," "Birthday," and "One Hour's Journey." The first segment finds a couple filing for divorce and then reconciling their differences when the judge is overruled. Part two finds the wife (Irene Orska) of a retired official (Tasdeusz Fijewski) the only person who remembers her husband's birthday. The most somber feature is the last one where a pompous railroad man delays the journey of a doctor who is trying to save the life of a young child.
