Miler’s life has revolved around the black market; he is one of the true artists”of crime. Tadeusz’s crime has been to live the life of an artist. He found love with the beautiful Zuzanna, who seduced him as he immortalized her in his painting The Horizontal Woman” but Tadeusz also found deceit, political intrigue, and murder.
