The story about a prison break of two intellectuals serving long sentences: Marek Kowalewski, a talented hundred-dollar bills forger and his cell mate, older and retarded “professor” Witek. When a Polish representative is kidnapped in Afghanistan, the vice-minister responsible for his release instructs Maker to print a six million dollar ransom. He plans to give the Afghans the fake money and keep the real one. Marek leaves the prison for a month to prepare the banknotes under strict supervision. It is supposed to provide him with a cassation of judgement but after completing the task, he gets back to his cell and nobody cares to release him.
