presents 48 hours in the life of a young, provincial debt collector named Lucek Bohme. Bohme is the best debt collector in the town of Walbrzych, Poland. His job makes him feel powerful—he collects taxes from anyone who owes, including the destitute. The law is sacred to him, but somewhere on the way he forgets that the law is made for man, not vice versa. Bohme, therefore, has no moral scruples in his work. At the start of the movie, he confiscates medical equipment belonging to the area's only hospital as part of the hospital's debt. But his self-conscience takes a blow when he is confronted with an incident that has a lasting effect on him. One day a debtor he mistreated hangs himself on his stairs, a shock that sets in motion a transformation. Bohme wants to change his life and compensate at least some of his recent victims. For the first time in his life, he begins to give some serious thought to what he does and seeks redemption.
