Antek Gralak has just been released from prison. He leaves his home town of Krakow and gets work on a building site in Silesia, All he wants are the simple things in life: work, somewhere clean to sleep, food, a wife, television and peace. Anxious to avoid conflicts and happy to be alive and free, he is friendly with his colleagues and open-hearted and grateful to his employer. He finds a girl and gets married, but conflicts at work prove inevitable. Building materials start disappearing – Gralak's boss is involved in the theft. Thinking that he's found a potential accomplice in Gralak, the boss attempts to bring him in on the under- hand deals. A strike breaks out among the builders. Torn between the two sides – his boss and his colleagues – and longing for peace, Gralak turns up for work. The builders, believing he has grassed on them, beat him up, as he mutters "Calm… calm."
