Locations: the story takes place in WroclawLower SilesiaPoland

In Wroclaw on the street Zlote Kolo (Golden Wheel) driver stops when he sees a young boy, who seems to be ill. Soon he discovers that boy is wounded, so he takes him to the hospital and leaves. When boy dies from the headwound the police (militia) starts the investigation, but with no obvious clues they have to gather as much data as they can. Captain Budny is off duty and wants to spend some time with his son, but he just can’t forget the case and returns to police station to take up the investigation, which will reveal more secrets that he would expect.

One of the very few examples of good Polish crime movies. Based on a story by Aleksander Scibor-Rylski it is sometimes too idealistic about the police officers, but good cast, interesting plot and complexed mystery makes it a very entertaining movie.
