A man hops off a train by the small town. When he begins claiming that he has been there before, the villagers are confused as none of them recognize him. Still one family takes him in; they try to get him to tell about his clouded past, but all he will tell them is that he changed his name from Kowalski to Malinowski to throw off those who would kill him. His presence in town has a strange effect on the community and soon they begin changing. The strange man then miraculously seems to cure two sick children (he also seduces his host's daughter). Later he teaches them the entrancing dance, the salto. Things are going quite well for the enigmatic fellow until…

W dziwnym miasteczku, gdzies na pograniczu surrealistycznej fantazji i realnosci, pojawia sie niezwykly mezczyzna o pelnej sprzecznosci osobowosci. To Kowalski-Malinowski - polski Jederman - przesladowany cierpietnik, mitoman i falszywy prorok. Mieszkancom miasteczka przedstawia rozne wersje swojej biografii i ludzie ci wierza w wymyslony dramat jego wojennych losow. Kazda z postaci jest nosicielem jakiegos polskiego losu - niestrudzonego, wiernego przysiedze wojaka (Rotmistrz), Zyda (Blumenfeld), wieszcza (Poeta). Ale sa to osobowosci groteskowe, podatne na slowa-frazesy, ktorymi szermuje Kowalski-Malinowski. Symboliczne spoleczenstwo zostaje wciagniete do falszywej gry, poZniej zas hipnotycznego tanca, zwanego saltem, ktory przybysz prowadzi niczym Chochol z dramatu Wyspianskiego. Czar szybko pryska, a pojawia sie proza zycia, gdy do miasteczka przyjezdza zona Malinowskiego i ujawnia, ze malzonek to zwykly dziwkarz i lgarz. Konwicki pokusil sie o dyskusje z polska szkola filmowa i rejestracje specyficznych egzorcyzmow wymierzonych w spoleczna mitomanie. Film o nas samych - powiedzial Zbigniew Cybulski.
