Henryk Kowalski works as a taxi driver in the coastal city in Poland. One night after a row with his girlfriend he leaves for night shift, but his partner does not show up with the car. Henryk is worried, but suspects there was some problem with the car, so he goes home. In the morning police finds the taxi in the remote place and Henryk’s partner inside shot in the back. It wasn’t first a taxi driver was killed like that in this area, so the police investigates all the leads... including Henryk’s alibi or rather lack of it. Henryk on the other hand tries to find the killer on his own.

Oldfashioned crime-mystery movie set in Polish coastal city, where taxi drivers are killed after the ride to a secluded house. Not very inspired plot, but comparing to other such movies from same era a decent entertainment.
