This film presents a unique anthology from the oeuvre of the Polish novelist Witold Gombrowicz. An actor pretends to be a writer. He sits in his office, reflects and puts words to paper, which are then performed by Jan Decorte. The text influences the situations shown and vice versa. A fascinating interplay between the associative effect of words and the sensations of the actors ensues. The film opens with a pancarte: "The images you see are reality. The texts are literature. That is what this film is about: reality as it is, and reality as it was written."
