synopsis A man returns to Warsaw after a long absence in hopes of recapturing his past. During the war he had fought in a guerilla group and had been wounded, suffering partial paralysis. Now attempting to rediscover what he has lost, the strange passenger hires a taxi and embarks on a quest for his missing identity. He visits the places connected with his painful experiences in the war and tries to reconstruct the events of a particular day, with the aid of the taxi-driver. The driver, and others whom he meets, must enact certain roles as ‘actors” in the “theatre” that he is putting on.
