Poland, in the politically turbulent late 1970s: Witek is running to catch a train. From this banal event, Krzysztof Kieslowski, the director of Dekalog and the Three Colours trilogy, imagines three different possible outcomes in the young manâ€™s life. In the first scenario, Witek catches the train, on which he meets some hard line Communists and joins the party. In the second, as Witek runs for the train, his path is blocked by a ticket inspector; the ensuing struggle leads to his arrest and subsequent involvement in the political underground. In the final scenario, Witek misses the train and he returns to the medical studies that he intended to abandon. He falls in love with a female student, gets married and lives a quiet life as a doctor, showing little interest in politics.
