In this film from acclaimed Polish director Kazimierz Kutz, Augustyn Halotta plays the retired miner Habryka -- a man lauded for his work ethic but pressured by the communist government to give up his family home to make way for "progress." When the old miner, living in the central European region of Silesia, refuses to move into the new apartments offered by the government, his family threatens to abandon him.
