Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
In this at times illogical film, while trying to regain his memory, an amnesiac wanders around trying to avoid some thugs who seem to want to do him in. It seems that he lost his memory in the first place as a result of injuries he suffered from a beating by two ex-policemen. They thought him dead, but are now concerned that he will remember who they are and identify him. His only safe refuge is with a homeless bag lady who claims to have been the toast of Paris in her heyday. As the thugs draw nearer, the fugitive regains his memory, only to discover that the life he once had has vanished for good. This story is reportedly a political allegory about modern Poland.
