Ein junger Mann begeht an einem kalten Frühlingstag des Jahres 1987 in einem trostlosen Aussenbezirk Warschaus einen Raubmord an einem englischen Taxifahrer.

Der polnische Film, der europaweit sowie in USA, Kanada, Argentinien und Japan erfolgreich in den Kinos lief, wurde schnell mit Auszeichnungen und Preisen überhäuft. Unter anderem erhielt das düstere Meisterwerk den "Spezialpreis der Jury" im Rahmen des Cannes Film Festivals 1988 [....]. (Quelle: Umschlagtext)
