A young woman meets a man in a night train. He is quite apparently running from something. As the story unveils, the atmosphere thickens when it turns out that the same train might be carrying a murderer, the woman is being followed by someone desperate and the other passengers reveal themselves to be drowning in their own wants, anxieties and obsessions. Jerzy Kawalerowicz utilizes Hitchcockian techniques to spin a cinephile’s cult-worthy tale about being lost, in which the crime arc is just the drama’s spark.
