A Polish contractor, Nowak, is hired by a communist party boss to refurbish an apartment that the boss maintains in London for either business or pleasure. Nowak and his crew of Polish carpenters and masons arrive in London just a few days before the Solidarity uprising gets underway and martial law is declared in Poland. Because he is the only one who can read the news in the British press, Nowak decides to keep his crew in the dark about the events taking place at home. He rationalizes this by telling himself that the news from Poland will merely distract his crew and slow down the work. By taking this one decision Nowak begins to mimic the Communist regime he grew up with, controlling information in the interest of productivity. Director Jerzy Skolimowski used his own London apartment as the set for this film, creating a paranoid portrait of life in London as lived by illegal immigrants. Living on the margins of society, eating and sleeping where they work, the Polish crew exists as a satellite community only interacting with each other and always thinking of home
