The young writer settles in the house, where a couple of people loving each other also live. These two, their passionate and sometimes completely strange relationships capture him. He first tries to empathize, to help them. But gradually he realizes that it is impossible to help either a man or a woman.
- Man. A professional psychiatrist can scrupulously describe the disease. It seems to be paranoid schizophrenia . This man rushes among fears and fantasies, then soaring to the heights of success, then falling into the abyss.
- A woman lives in the past. Children who are no longer with her. A father who, by the end of the film, is developing an increasingly clear, and at the same time, increasingly contradictory view.
Past. Poland. Second World War . Upon arrival at the concentration camp, the three-year-old daughter Sophie (whom she is forced to refuse: “the woman has only one child”) is sent to the crematorium, the six-year-old son (whom she left at the cost of her daughter) is transferred to a work camp for children. Sophie is transferred to serve the camp leader.
