It is a bitter story about a middle-aged man who hates his life, other people and ultimately himself. Adam Miauczynski, the character known from director Marek Koterski's previous films, is a 49 year-old teacher who reads poetry during school lessons and later goes home swearing and calling his neighbours' names. The worst pain for him is the next 5 minutes of living. He doesn't accept himself and even everyday contacts with others cause his aggression. Though constantly dreaming of a romantic love, he is not bold enough to make his dreams come true. Written by

Just like in two previous films about Adam Miauczynski, director Marek Koterski
considered casting Cezary Pazura
in the lead role. However, he changed his mind because of the fact that Pazura was then associated too much with popular sitcoms, and although the film had many comic scenes, it was not a typical comedy anymore. See more
When we see the dog shitting under Adam's balcony, it firstly does it on thick, green grass but in the later scene when the dog is with a woman, it stands on bare ground without any grass. See more
My dear friend on this journey. You built this dark mound to lead the life of a termite. Protected from the sunlight. Closed in your sad rigid rituals. Even if they make you mad, these rituals became your shield against the winds, the waves, against stars and feelings. Every day you struggle to forget your human condition. The clay you are molded from has dried out and hardened. No one will ever find in you an astronomer, musician, altruist, poet or human who lived for even one day.
