Jacek (Miroslaw Baka) climbs into the taxi driven by Waldemar (Jan Tesarz), tells him to drive to a remote location, then brutally strangles him, seemingly without motive. He's soon arrested and turned over to the state, with his only ally his idealist defense attorney, Piotr (Krzysztof Globisz). Defending his client, Piotr throws himself into the trial, but the outcome is never in doubt. Jacek is found guilty and sentenced to be executed, a death just as brutal as that suffered by his victim.
