1953, Warsaw, rising from ruins of war, is a place where anything is possible including the absurd, the surreal, and the Kafkaesque. Mister T is an established writer who knows this from his personal experience. Living in a shabby hotel run by the writer’s association, he supports himself by tutoring a beautiful student helping her to prepare for the A-level exams that will complete here high school education. They are having a passionate romance. A young small-town man who aspires to become a journalist moves into the flat next door, and Mr. T becomes his master and teacher. When the agents of the secret police come to suspect Mr. T of planning to blow up the Palace of Culture and Science, Stalin’s gift to the People’s Republic of Poland, absurd reality starts to blend with the surrealist world of Mr. T’s writer’s imagination, and the result is both comedic and bizarre.
