In the mid-Sixties, former Medic Academy students meet at a reunion of the tenth anniversary of their graduation. Encouraged by a letter from an absent friend, a group of four men and a woman decide to visit him. "Shelved immediately after being made in 1967, this film was reedited and new footage added. It begins with a sci-fi motif: abstract images and electronic music take the viewer from ruins of Lebanon to the set of Voelker Schloendorf "The Forgery" where Skolimowski plays a lead role. Another shift takes us to London, where Skolimowski shoots a street scene. There are also shifts into the past with the old footage, featuring a score of Polish actors in a setting resembling Kantor's experimental theatre"--Polish Cinema Database
