A Chronicle of Amorous Incidents 1985


Vilnius and its surroundings, summer 1939, the eve of the outbreak of the Second World War. Witek for the first time falls in love with Alina, the daughter of Colonel Nałęcz. Slowly, he manages to overcome her reluctance and win her heart. The couple plan to escape together after school-leaving exams. Unfortunately, Witek fails the exams and, to make matters worse, he finds out that Alina is to go abroad. They arrange to meet for the last time and the girl comes on the date wearing a white \'wedding\' dress. They spend all night together, eventually falling asleep on the river bank. What wakes them up is the sound of sirens which rend the air signaling the outbreak of war.
