The documentary is a record of the conversations between Czesław Miłosz and Ewa Wójciak, co-founder and actress of the Theatre of the Eighth Day. The theatre from Poznań took inspiration from Miłosz’s poetry and essays since the beginning of its existance. The poet’s works have more than once been used in the performances of this legendary group. One of the places where the poet and the actress had their conversations was Miłosz’s apartment.
