The left eye.

Read it, can you see a number?

96, 35, 26.

Next.

Breathe in.

It will be 92 when I breathe in.

Breathe out.

It's 88 when I breathe out.

It's 175, I didn't straighten up.

Let it be 175.

I practice sport, often measure myself.

125/80. Thank you, next.

Want to go to air forces with such height?

I'd like to.

So you're an alpine instructor?

Yes.

I read something about you,

about the Himalayas.

It was about my father, he died 10 years ago.

Fine, Partyka.

Sign this.

THE CONSTANT FACTOR

It's on your left.

What's going on?!

Lower me!

What's going on?

I'm not going anywhere!

I don't want to get killed!

Leave me alone!

Come on, you lazybones!

Or I'll throw you down!

Are you in a hurry?

No.

Vitamins.

Pay for it.

Excuse me, 84 zloties.

Thank you.

Take it, you'll have to buy a ticket.

I'll manage to come back somehow.

- Take it.

- But mum...

No way.

- Bye.

- Take care.

- Your old man was going this way?

- In 1960?

I don't know.

He came earlier with the Swiss people.

I don't know which way, neither does mother.

How old was he then?

He was 24 when I was born

and 36 when he died.

Boleslaw Partyka, geologist, alpinist

How much service do you have left?

Two months.

What then?

I'll get to work.

I want to spare some money and get an apartment.

Maybe I'll get on some extramural studies.

Your father was a chilly guy too,

always shivering.

He was?

I didn't know that.

Where are you going to work?

I'd like to work in Warsaw.

You finished technical college, didn't you?

Yes.

Can something be done about it?

Give me a call

when you finish your national service.

Thank you.

Your ID, please.

Are you the recommended person?

I think so.

Please come to human resources department, sir.

The gentleman has come.

It's a busy place, you know.

We have a serious rival.

- You worked there, right?

- Where?

In the International Trade and Fair Company.

No, I didn't.

- Nice to meet you.

- Hello.

- This gentleman is an electrician?

- Of course.

I'm glad when young people come to work here.

Let's go.

I don't want any misunderstandings, but...

I don't even know

the man who called to recommend me.

- What's your name?

- Witold.

Mr. Witek, for me you can be a total stranger,

but you have to be honest.

Mum?

I got the job.

The salary is small, but... Hello?

But there are business trips

to various countries.

Hello?

Next week

I'm going to apply for a passport

and I'll probably go to India.

Yes, to India, to Mumbai.

I can spare some money...

I don't spend much lately anyway...

Hello?

I'll probably buy a camera

or borrow one from my friend.

Yes, but... I think about my studies now.

Yes, I take care of myself.

I jog, train a bit.

I eat fruit... I ran out of coins!

What are we going to do now?

Go and buy 50 m of this fabric.

- Do you have dollars?

- Only my own.

Boys will stay for the night

and it will be done in the morning.

It's our third night shift.

I don't give a damn about such trips.

I'd rather prepare a fair in some Polish village.

- Do you have anything to declare?

- No.

- How many skins do you have?

- 4, but

it's for my wife, I'm not going to sell it.

Man, wouldn't you sell me one skin?

I'll pay you in foreign currency.

Why in foreign currency? It's 1000zl.

- OK.

- In front of the building.

Your father used to make slides, don't you do it?

It's beautiful.

- I'll hang it on the wall.

- I lost my camera.

I'll take photos next time.

- You're leaving again?

- Yes.

For how long?

There's a chance of going to USA.

For two months,

lots of interesting work and money too.
