Tables screwed to the floor. One hour that must suffice for two weeks, sometimes even a month: the visiting room of a Polish jail. On one side: husbands, sons, fathers; on the opposite: children, wives, mothers. The film depicts the world of a mother who comes to visit her son: her devotion, her solitude, and her constant waiting.
