Based on a novel by Polish author Witold Gombrowicz, the film is an ominous and manic exploration of desire. Witold, a student who has just failed his law exams and his companion Fuchs, who has just quit his job in fashion, both go in search of peace and quiet in a guesthouse run by the cheerfully bizarre Madame Woytis. A series of strange omens and spooky forebodings transform Witold’s reality, as he becomes obsessed with the landlady’s newly married daughter.
