“Inventive and ironic, but riddling and elusive.”—The Independent

Set in Gdansk, twelve men have been invited by their mutual friend to model at a photographic session for a modern version of The Last Supper. The histories of the men are revealed through their thoughts on the day: their wayward behavior is a reflection of the role of the church in Polish society today. The reunion is disturbed as a wave of terrorist bombs paralyzes the city, creating upheaval and a sense of unease.
