Kasia, a student of a dance school, lives with her mother in a large apartment. One day, the mother lets a spare room to a sport school student. The lodger and Kasia develop an extraordinary contact with no words and no meetings. The film is based on Bogna Hołyńska’s short story “Fresh paint” and refers to the sixth Commandment: “Thou shall not commit adultery”.
