Król works at a Warsaw police station riddled with corruption, drugs and sex with prostitutes. When one of his colleagues is found dead in a river, he is wrongly suspected, as the dead man had been having an affair with Król's wife. He flees in order to solve the case on his own and stumbles upon a swamp of criminal activity on an international scale. With its breath-taking editing, this police thriller was a big hit in Poland and was seen by 1.5m people.
