to my mother

Why are you locking it?

To stop people breaking in.

But I don't have the key.

It was you who broke in.

That's why you don't have the key.

Hello.

Excuse me!

Come here, please!

Over here.

Basia, a glass for the teacher.

Hello.

There you go.

It's so cold today.

Mum, let's go.

Thank you.

THE CLINIC SQUA It's closed.

But you've opened up.

So it's open.

That is very closed, mate.

Coffee?

I'm sorry, all the guest rooms are full.

There's no room.

Yeah, but they're moving to Syrena, so...

This is the common room, shared space.

Sometimes things go on all night.

No chance.

It's just for one person.

And a dog.

I'll take the dog.

No, you won't!

He's mine.

He's just a stray.

You don't know who the owner is.

Here boy.

Stay!

HOMELESS WOMEN'S SHELTER.

No. You have to leave.

Kole, here!

These are administrative proceedings.

And then judicial-administrative

proceedings.

And higher still

the European Court of Human Rights.

We smell a rat...

The ability to be a legal entity,

to participate in legal formalities.

The right to engage in legal activities.

It applied freemen from birth.

homo liber

It didn't apply to slaves.

Till death.

...alive,

when the sign of life

was crying - the Proculeans,

or any other sign.

You'll lose your place

if the dog comes back.

Look after him.

When did you lose that f*cking tooth?

You seeing that tall girl?

Yeah, she's awesome...

Was it a race or something?

I started in first.

And then I was hooked.

And then I was hooked.

Is it working out with her?

It's f*cking amazing.

That's what counts.

Stay!

Stay!

It's f*cking dirty!

Do it right!

Stay.

The soft cloth, the soft cloth.

Sister Kazia found him under the bed.

And he growled at her.

What else do we have?

Girls?

We have a question...

We're doing a play...

about social exclusion.

Can we rehearse here?

About 5 or 6 people.

When would it be?

After lessons and at weekends.

All the lessons here are after school.

For people who can't afford to pay.

What about Sunday?

Micky teaches English on Sunday.

And he's taught Polish on Saturday.

That right, Micky?

Yeah, that's right.

Maybe Saturday morning.

That works for us.

Any objections?

Questions?

OK, girls, that's sorted.

Now squat business.

See you.

See you later. Bye.

I've got a question.

About a place to stay.

For one person.

Do you know anyone?

Anyone know him?

I do.

This is a bit different.

It's an eviction.

It's your mum, right?

- Yes.

The evictions on Nowogrodzka Street.

You should have said.

But there's still no free space.

The Syrians slept in the common room.

But they have a kid.

Any ideas?

No chance?

Afraid not.

OK, see you.

Bye.

He was in your class...

Yeah.

It's great that he got to university.

Shall we go, mum?

Thank you.

Why did you lock the padlock?

You don't have the key.

You can open it without a key.

How many times must I break in?

People leave the doors unlocked

to avoid break-ins.

A padlock means

they prefer us to break in.

Why not a place that isn't locked?

It's nice and tidy here.

I can get the floor clean.

Here boy.

Turn it off!

Who the f*ck's sleeping there?

Let's wake him up.

Can't sleep here, scruff!

You f*cking cunt!

Get the f*ck out!

Hold on, I'll wake the f*cker.

Get out of here!
