A renowned picture about the employees of the Krosno Linen Industry Plant, awarded the Grand Prix – “Golden Dragon” at the International Short Film Festival in Cracow. Kamieńska’s film depicts the daily duties and problems of the title women who had to work in conditions reminiscent of a penitentiary. A shocking picture about which Maria Malatyńska wrote: “The Face, hands, feet cast suddenly in front of the eyes of the audience speak more about the treatment of humans than the most fiery rally speeches could.”
