Synopsis

In the spring of 1981 the director expanded the film by a half -hour episode – diary recorded by the camera. Shreds of life: London, Warsaw, and Lebanon. A home army liaison girl dying in the ruins of Beirut, the dead body of a man shot at the Wilenski Station in Warsaw – truth and fiction. Then we move a dozen or so years back. Hand up was made in 1967. And again reality and imagination blend so accurately that now, in retrospect, fiction becomes truth. Time has played its trick on the film, but the film is falling back to play its trick on time in self-defense.
