As he sleeplessly tosses and turns in his bed, the middle-aged protagonist of this Polish film (played by Zbigniew Rola) remembers his many purely sexual encounters with women who were as determined to achieve sexual release as he was. These couplings are shown in the form of flashbacks, and his general attitude of despair at his lack of human connection with these women becomes increasingly evident. As a result of his promiscuity, he also has become a familiar figure at VD clinics. Despite the titillating nature of the images (and the consequent popularity of the film in Poland), the overall message of the movie is that promiscuous, loveless sex is debasing in precisely the same way that pornography is.
