SYNOPSIS:

In a cinema theatre called "Liberty" a screening of “Jutrzenka” (Dawn) is on. It is interrupted by an extraordinary incident: actors in the movie come to life, they are soon engrossed in an animated conversation among themselves and then draw the audience into it too. Crowds of people gather outside the theatre. The authorities (including secret police) are not sure what to think and do about the occurrence. A censor, a literary critic and a journalist join the scene. The border line separating fiction from reality fades away.
