ABOUT THE FILM

The field of observation is limited to the seat of the Registry Office in Nowa Huta within its hours of operations, or more specifically to its three rooms. One of them is used to register births, the second one – deaths and the third one – weddings. The observation of the clients’ and clerks’ behavior in each room unveils a picture of our everyday life as well as fate.
