An extraordinary account of a 31-hour (more than a day and night) shift of orthopaedic surgeons at a hospital in Warsaw. Instruments fall apart, electricity supply is stopped once and again, the most fundamental materials are lacking - and yet the physicians perform multi-hour surgeries without losing their sense of humour. Although they receive poor salaries for their superhuman efforts, they will return for their next shift, as scheduled.
