The story of a doctor named Tomasz who questions his beliefs, faith and morality as the end of his life is near, so he makes all efforts to find dignity in his imminent death.
The final film—which swept the Polish Film Awards—in our Krzysztof Zanussi retrospective brings us to the post-Communist era of Poland today. An eloquent drama about the quest for spiritual harmony while facing death, it asks vital questions about how to accept the world as it changes around you.
