Vitold works and attends maths courses at the University. His hobby is mountain climbing. He is a young, straightforward man. When he discovers his boss's financial manipulations, he tells him he will inform the management. Soon afterwards he goes on a trip to the Himalayas. During customs clearance, an officer finds dollars sown into his jacket. Vitold realizes that the money was planted by his boss. He misses the chance to go to the mountains. He also loses both his job and his reputation.
Zanussi’s quasi-scientific approach, building a mosaic of tangential facts and findings out of his findings, often manages to turn ordinary life into something extraordinary. Moments of tenderness and surprise abound. - Time Out
