Andrzej, a great fan of speedway racing, can’t go back home where his beloved woman as well as a the world cup TV broadcast are waiting for him, because he has to fill in for his indisposed colleague at a night shift in the carwash. It was another quiet night, as he expected. Until a yellow Wartburg drove into the carwash... ‘People have been trying to create tragedies for ages, yet what comes out is just a comedy’ – this is the motto by Jean-Baptiste Emanuel Zorg, which opens this film, full of suspense and comedy.
