Yes, it is literally a film about a prisoner, Piotr, who gets out for three days to get a taste of the life outside that he knows nothing about since he has been inside for 15 years. His leaving is followed in details, all his belongings are checked before he gets through the many doors to meet some friends and first of all a man, a psychologist I guess, who takes him to the city and shows him around in a world that has changed a lot. He buys a nice shirt, dresses up, goes and meets his sister, who does not seem to have a good life, on the contrary. Marek, the man, who takes care of him, advises Piotr to ”adjust your dreams to reality”, once you get out. Back again, a wordless scene, images speak in the fine tradition of well crafted short documentaries from Poland. Precise language, right to the point, sometimes pretty moving in its treatment of an important question – how to reintegrate prisoners in society.
