An extraordinary filmed round-the-clock shift in the E.R. of the hospital on Barska Str. in Warsaw. On the one hand, there are the patients waiting for assistance, on the other, the medical personnel struggling with many varied problems. During one of the operations, a surgical hammer breaks in the surgeon’s hand… and the camera records this. It also looks into the doctors’ offices and the support facilities. The hospital lacks wound dressings, specialist equipment and surgical instruments. The surgeons are exhausted, their earnings are paltry, but they carry out their work with sacrifice. Kieslowski shows the reality of hospital life in the seventies just as it was, no retouching.
