Combat Organization of the Polish Socialist Party orders a custom bomb with a special fuse. The explosive is collected by Kama, the organiser of a suicidal assassination attempt against a governor. The governor, however, doesn’t arrive in the town he was expected in. Kama can’t stand the heat and lands in an asylum with a nervous breakdown. The bomb and money are hidden in a village. In 1905, the tide turns. Bomb keeper Wojtek Kiełza transports the weapon to Warsaw, though, he can’t make out who wants to fight and who’s just an agent provocateur. Eventually, he’s arrested and sentenced to death but manages to disclose where the bomb is hidden to Gryziak. The released anarchist throws the explosive into a room full of Okhrana officers, only it doesn’t go off.
