The Inspector (ROMAN POLANSKI), does not believe a word of what he says and snears at him while he tell his tale. How can this man with a smashed in face be the famous Onoff, sublime author of his most beloved novels. And why does he suffer from partial amnesia? Could he be the man they are looking for?

The mystery will be solved only at dawn and will be an incredible revelation for Onoff.
