Bartek is a student. He earns his living by writing master’s theses. Moral perplexities are absent from his life. One day from the train’s compartment Bartek sits in, a passenger disappears leaving his coat and a briefcase. When Bartek hears a cell phone ringing in the coat’s pocket, he does not hesitate to answer it. From now on his life changes…
