In the sequel to Polish dissident filmmaker Andrzej Wajda's "Man of Marble," alcoholic television reporter Winkiel (Marian Opania) is assigned by Communist Party bosses the task of discrediting the Gdansk shipyard strikers, particularly charismatic worker Tomczyk (Jerzy Radziwilowicz) and his politically detained filmmaker wife, Agnieszka (Krystyna Janda). The film is set against Poland's emergent Solidarity labor movement, and includes scenes filmed during actual labor strikes.
