The film shows one working day in the orthopaedic ward at one of Warsaw’s hospitals. While patients wait for help, the medical staff is constantly faced with various obstacles.

The films in the second Krzysztof Kieślowski: a documentary biography part of the Kieślowski retrospective are available for watching only together, without a break between them.
