Plot Summary:

Though presumably dealing with the Prussian army's invasion of Poland in 1793, this
ambitious and highly allegorical drama probably seemed too contemporary to Polish
censorship back in 1972 , thus didn't get released until 1988. Young Polish nobleman Jakub
(Leszek Teleszynski) is saved from imprisonment by a stranger. In return, the stranger wants
to obtain a list of Jakub's fellow conspirators. As he follows his mysterious savior across the
country, Jakub is affected by the overall chaos and moral corruption; he goes insane and
becomes a mass murderer.
