It is an absurdist black comedy written by a famous Polish avant-garde writer and painter.

The plot concerns a mad poet kept against his will at the State Mental Institution where he is being cured by two psychiatrist who treat him as their guinea pig. When one of the doctors introduces a heartbroken Catholic nun (as a part of a therapeutic experiment), the patient attempts to seduce her, hoping that she will help him to free himself.
