This story plays in the head of a man in coma being transported from The Midway Hospital in Los Angeles to the Lindley Hospital in Warsaw, Poland. The year is 1969--- April, around Easter. The Cold War is still raging on. Our protagonist happens to be the legendary Polish film composer Krzysztof Komeda, best known for his music to Roman Polanski's film. He has been comatose since Christmas of 1968, with a constant vigil of his friends at his bedside. Presumed as in a vegetative state and contrary to the physicians’ opinion, Komeda registers everything but cannot communicate his thoughts to the outside world. The entire life of Krzysztof will be told through his relations with five women: his mother, his sister Irena, his first great love Basia, his wife Zosia and his last love, an Israeli actress Ilana. Factual in nature, this multilayered tale describes the history of Polish jazz and the role the American music played in the fight for freedom in Poland.
