Janek’s secret affair
A secret affair between a New York police detective and a beautiful young woman is a central theme of this thriller. After a string of high-profile cases, Janek is assigned to the case of a mysterious young woman who is suspected of murder. In the meantime, Jo is secretly meeting Maciek, a teacher at the same school. As their love lives become increasingly intertwined, Janek is faced with new challenges. Jo’s mother, Karina, suffers from Alzheimer’s disease. Witek, meanwhile, is having a mid-life crisis, spending his time running in the bar with young men. And Janek spends too much time alone in his room, smoking pot and talking on the phone.
Janek’s relationship with a fellow science teacher

The blackmailer had threatened to expose Jo’s relationship with Witek to the entire city if she did not reveal the truth. The blackmailer also hoped that Jo would reveal the truth to Witek and break all ties with him. But that wasn’t to be.
