Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
In a routine, somewhat sudsy melodrama about the hard knocks of a coal-miner, Nowaczek (Jaroslaw Dunaj) has opted for work in the mines over work in the army -- but the difference seems to be minimal. His time is split between the mines, the barracks he shares with his mining buddies, and the bars. Talk centers around women, but action is more likely to center around the ping-pong table. Interspersed between the days of routine are moments of danger in the mines -- a fatal accident and a near-fatal accident -- and moments of triumph in the dating and mating rituals.
