The plot is composed of strange stories whose peculiar character is highlighted by the author’s stylised language.
A journey into the unknown provides an opportunity to show the true face of modern man whose life remains unchanged even after a disaster. There is an inherent fallibility to Sieńczyk’s characters, as well as inability and unwillingness to change. Stranded on a desert island, they don’t take any action ? they simply recount incredible stories and wait to be carried along by the tides of fate.
