Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
Tomek (Arthur Zmijewski) is one of those rare people who follow their best instincts and get away with it. In this story, Tomek has made the acquaintance of Julia (Krystyna Janda), a very depressed, neurotic older woman. He invites her to stay with his devoutly Catholic mother (Maja Komorowska) and himself, and the two of them then try to deal with her hysteria and neediness. When it becomes clear that she needs treatment for her condition, Tomek goes to West Germany and, refusing the easy money his father (who is living there) offers him, takes a job in order to make enough money.
