"Who are you?" and "What would you really want?" - two questions Kieœlowski put to Poles from various social backgrounds, and in age between 2 and 100. Nearly every answer and the film as a whole reveal a more or less strong desire for freedom and justice. In reality, there is frustration and powerlessness.

In this film we see and hear a middle-aged night watchman. We see him at work, but particularly in his spare hours, when he puts his predilection for checking on others into practice. For example, he checks anglers on the possession of a fishing licence, and in the afternoon he stands guard near cinemas to catch school kids playing truant. If he spots something that is not quite right he reports it to the police. Kieœlowski: "This film deals with the individual willingness to fascism".
