Story

A portrait of a town where some people work, others roam around in search of Lord knows what… A town which is full of eccentricities, all sorts of absurd statues and various contrasts… full of ruins, hovels, recesses.” (Krzysztof Kieslowski). Kieslowski’s diploma film. Impressions of a city dominated by the textile industry. Optimistic commentary is juxtaposed with images of buildings falling apart.
