Agnieszka and Janusz got to know each other by letter while serving the many years of their sentences. They have established a very strong bond. Agnieszka is already allowed out on leave, having served eight years of her long sentence for premeditated murder. “The Conversation” takes place while she’s on leave. That is when she gets to see Janusz for the first time (on a monitor). The screen, divided into two parts, becomes a metaphor for their situation. Agnieszka was sentenced to 25 years imprisonment, Janusz has a life sentence.
