Summary
A compelling drama about the difficulty of reconciling political ideals with personal happiness. This unforgettable film follows Witek, a medical student with an uncertain future in Communist Poland; the movie dramatizes Witek's journey as a series of different possibilities, suggesting that chance rules our lives as much as choice. First suppressed and then censored by the Polish government
