When it comes to expression, this documentary is built on: its protagonist's narration, painting, and the director's music. The verbal layer consists of Zbigniew Kołakowski's memories of war. As a teenage boy he survived two concentration camps: in Sachsenhausen and in Flossenburg. He worked at the crematorium. When he got there he thought it would postpone his death by two weeks (that was how often they changed the crematorium staff). It is a powerful film, in the protagonist's own words. And thanks to the protagonist himself – one that gives hope.
